Research interests

I am currently a Research Fellow at CEAuniversité de Paris-Saclay in the HPC lab (High performance Computing lab) called Maison de la Simulation. My research interests are in general related to all aspect of fluid dynamics, radiative transfer, and chemistry and their study through numerical simulations in HPC. I give a great importance to the link with observations and experiments. The specific domains, I am (and was) working on are:

  • The modeling of atmospheric dynamics with chemistry and radiative transfer applied to exoplanets, brown dwarfs, and stars. I am the developper lead of the 1D/2D ATMO code. Linked to ground-based telescope observations and to JWST (James Webb Space Telescope) future observations.
  • The modeling of the radiative impact of massive stars on their parent molecular cloud. I am part of the developper team of the HERACLES code. Linked to ground-based telescope observations and to the Heschel Space Observatory.
  • I used to work (internship for the Master degree) on the site testing for submilleter observations on the Concordia base at Dome C in Antarctica (Three summer campaigns 2008-2009, 2009-2010, 2012-2013).
