François Graner - personal site

In my teaching activities (and in popular science as well) I try to stimulate the physical intuition, and close the gap between the scientific approach and daily life. Below are some examples ; for more details see the french page.

Teaching activities

  • Soft matter lectures
  • Biophysics lectures
  • Summer schools lectures
  • Books for teachers and students
