Florent Seichepine received his engineering degree in material science from the national polytechnique intitute of Toulouse, France (2008) and his M.Sc. degree in Materials, nanomaterials and multi-materials from the University of Toulouse, France (2008). He obtained his PhD (2011) in nanophysics for his work on large scale integration of carbon nanotube interconnection while working for LAAS-CNRS, CIRIMAT-CNRS and INTEL Ireland.

From 2012 to 2016, he was a research assistant in the Frey initiative research unit in RIKEN, Kobe, Japan.

He joined the Hamlyn Centre for Medical Robotics, Imperial College London, UK in May 2016 as a Research Associate, and took since the responsability of head of the Centre research facilities.

His research are mainly focused on microfabrication, packaging of CMOS and microsensors and the use of nanomaterials for electronics and sensing in biological environments.

He currently pursues research on flexible electronics for medical application, nanosensors and electronics for microrobotics.
