Dr Perrault received her ME and PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Florida in 2005 and 2007. She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at McGill University in Montréal, Canada in the nanobioengineering laboratory, where she developed microfluidic tools for biological purposes. In 2009, she joined the Institute of BioEngineering of Catalonia in Barcelona, Spain to study biomechanics and mechanobiology.
In 2012, she joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield as lecturer. Dr Perrault’s research focuses on cellular mechanics and microfluidics. Her interest lies in the use of mechanical properties of cells and tissues for diagnostic purposes, with the development of microfluidic tools for cellular analysis. She is also interested in the use of mechanical stimulation for tissue engineering, more particularly bone generation in scaffolds.
Dr Perrault is a member of Work Package 5. Cell Model.
