About me


I am CNRS senior research scientist in the Computing and Fluids group at the Center for Material Forming (CEMEF UMR7635 CNRS–MINES ParisTech), an in the project-team Calisto, which is common to Inria Sophia Antipolis–Méditerranée and CNRS.

My scientific expertise concerns the study of turbulent flows, and more precisely the development and deployment of new analytical and numerical tools to tackle fundamental and applied problems in fluid dynamics and turbulent transport.
