Taraneh Javanbakht received her Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris, France. She then continued her postdoctoral studies in biomedical engineering at the Polytechnique Montreal. In parallel, she also did her M.Sc. in molecular biology at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). In the Wilkinson group, Taraneh studied in 2016 the efficacy of hydrogels to disrupt bacterial biofilms using laser scanning microscopy. She now rejoined the group in summer 2017 in a joint project with the Polytechnique Montreal to investigate the surface physics of organic catalysts.
