Welcome to my website
I am currently director of research at CNRS and Professeur Associé at Ecole Polytechnique where I serve as the head of the Mechanics Department and work in the LadHyx laboratory . Previously, I was affiliated with Institut D'Alembert of the University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris UPMC.
My main research interest is on surface dynamics, either through multiphase flows where the interface dynamics is crucial, surface vibrations (elastic plates or liquid surfaces) or interface deformations. It concerns different scientific contexts, from environmental flows (by modelling for instance the flood dynamics or the erosion induced by the impact of a drop) to industrial applications (liquid atomization or inkjet printing for instance). I develop and use analytical, theoretical and/or numerical tools to study these problems and collaboration with experimentalists is at the heart of my scientific activity.
