Personal profile


I'm born in France during the previous millennium and studied physics at the University of Toulouse. My PhD thesis topic was on the formation of binaries within globular clusters. I've worked in Italy, France, the USA, and now Australia in various universities and research centers. My main research area is high energy astrophysics, mostly explosive events. I am particularly interested on the imprints black holes and compact objects are creating into their surrounding media.

Fun fact: I've worked for the French, Italian, European, and American space agencies, but never at the same time.

Future research

Currently, I am working on ultra-long gamma-ray bursts to try to understand their surrounding medium and their progenitors. I am also interested into the structure of the jets emitted by these explosions, in particular their beaming, their composition, and how they are accelerated.
