Researcher in hydrodynamics applied to Earth Sciences
Now looking for a job in water resources management.
During my research career, I used my strong background in hydrodynamics to study various topics related to hydromorphology and hydrogeology. Now, I want to use this technical knowledge to help better managing water resources, in order to protect and improve the quality of aquatic ecosystems.
On this webpage, you can find a summary of the reasearch topics and of the skills set I have developped during the 8 years I spent doing research, plus a CV and the list of my publications.
Check out our new GRL paper, Stream-Discharge Surges Generated by Groundwater Flow, about the mechanism at the origin of floods in a small tropical watershed in Guadeloupe!
Come to the MSC PhD and Postdocs Day that we organise on June 12th!
Check out our new PRE paper on the uplift of an elastic membrane by a viscous flow!
From September 2017 to August 2020 I worked on erosion by dissolution. The flow of a fluid over a solid body is determined by the shape of the body, which imposes its boundaries to the fluid. If the body is soluble, its shape changes through the dissolution. In turn, this change of the fluid boundary affects the flow. We study this feedback mechanism between the flow and the dissolution.
My PhD focused on groundwater flow dynamics. We tried to understand how a groundwater flow can generate rapid flooding. We are now investigating the influence of the flow boundaries on its dynamics.
