PhD in Physics - Nanophysics


After completing my master's degree in Nanophysics at the University Clermont Auvergne, I was honored with an I-Site CAP20-25 Fellowship, enabling me to spearhead innovative research in cutting-edge technology. Subsequently, I pursued my PhD in Theoretical Physics in 2019, working alongside Prof. Dmitry Solnyshkov and Dr. Guillaume Malpuech in the Quantum Optoelectronics and Nanophotonics team at the Institut Pascal (UCA - CNRS), Aubière, France. During my doctoral studies, I delved into diverse areas, including:
  • Topology : quantum metric, topological lasers, domain walls.
  • Integrated photonics : 2D lasers, photonic crystals, clock generator.
  • Non-Hermitian systems : Exceptional (Voigt) points.
  • Materials physics : perovskite, TMDs, organics.
  • Polaritonics : exciton-polaritons, strong coupling, Bose-Einstein condensates.
  • Analog physics : rotating black holes, classical chromodynamics, Moiré superlattices, synthetic graphene.
I was honored to be awarded the prestigious national PhD prize by the SFP (Société Française de Physique)! 
Moreover, I had the opportunity of publishing dissemination articles for the condensed matter section of Physics World, an internationally physics magazine renowned for its comprehensive coverage of the latest news and developments in the field.
It was followed by a short postdoc at CNR-Nanotec, in Italy,  working on design and simulation of non-linear photonic structures.

I am starting an exciting new journey as a Research Engineer at CEA, working on the design of metasurfaces, using inverse design techniques and deep learning!
