Welcome to my home page!

I am now post-doctoral scholar at Université libre de Bruxelles (Brussels, Belgium), where I work on problems related to the water exit of spheres and cylinders. My research interests span from the dynamics of passive flyers to interface crossing, liquid fragmentation and bacterial rheotaxis.

I grew up in Grenoble, a beautiful city in the heart of the French Alps. I love mountain-biking, hiking, photography, and I occasionally enjoy skiing and gliding (I hold a glider pilot license since 2005).
