I am currently a Royal Society Newton International Fellow at DAMTP, Cambridge, UK. I combine numerical simulations, experiments and theory to tackle problems of geo- and astrophysical relevance. My main project is focused on the flows and heat transfers in icy satellites. I am also interested in geophysical waves and their non-linear behaviour.

From September 2016 to December 2019, I was a PhD student, then a junior research scientist at IRPHE, Marseille. My research focused on characterising the flows driven by tidal interactions in planetary cores. I was part of the FLUDYCO project under the supervision of Michael Le Bars and Benjamin Favier. You can find more details about my PhD work in the Research section of FLUDYCO’s website.



Past timeline

  • The experiment I carried out during my PhD recently made the cover of Journal of Fluid Mechanics
  • I am honoured to announce that I have been awarded a Newton International Fellowship by the Royal Society. I will soon (January 2020) undertake a research project at DAMTP, Cambridge University on idealised models of hydrothermal convection and mixing.
  • I have been working for quite a long time on an experiment probing the turbulence driven by tidal excitation in planetary cores. It has been published in Journal of Fluid Mechanics. The draft is already available on arXiv.
  • In April 2018, a series of lectures about the fluid dynamics of planets and stars took place at CISM is Udine. The lecture notes have been published, and I am the co-author of one chapter with my supervisor Michael Le Bars. The book may be found on the Springer website, and the draft of the chapter is on arXiv.
  • I was awarded in April 2018 a Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Fellowship which allowed me to take part to WHOI GFD Program. After two weeks of lectures, I carried out a research project on porous convection in icy satellites with Duncan Hewitt.
  • A team of video makers visited our lab in June 2018. It resulted in a set of nice clips to promote our research. Below is the 3 minutes clip focused on my research, where you can see my experiment rotate.
