PhD Candidate in Physics


After my master's degree in Nanophysics at University Clermont Auvergne, I was awarded an I-Site CAP20-25 Fellowship to initiate research on innovative technology. It was followed by a PhD in theoretical physics in 2019 in the Quantum Optoelectronics and Nanophotonics team under the supervision of Prof.  Dmitry Solnyshkov and Dr. Guillaume Malpuech at Institut Pascal (UCA - CNRS), Aubière, France. In my PhD, I worked on: 
  • 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 also write dissemination articles for the condensed matter section of Physics World, an internationally leading physics magazine that reports on news and exciting developments in the field. I am currently interested in working in the fields of quantum computing and quantum optoelectronics, both experimentally and theoretically.
