Welcome to my home page!
I am currently a post-doctoral scholar at University of Southern California (Los Angeles), in Eva Kanso's biodynamics lab . My research interests span from the dynamics of passive flyers to 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 got my glider pilot license in 2005). In addition to my research, I did some teaching activities during my PhD (and I loved it).
