Impact liquide
Profil de pale d'éolienne

Specializing in the fields of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), two-phase flows and energy, I try to extend my work beyond the strict boundaries of these disciplines.

I am particularly engaged in transdisciplinary projects that merge science, technology, art and society.

My goal is not only to work on scientific and technical problems, but also to integrate the solutions into the local socio-economic fabric for a lasting impact.

Through this integration, I seek to put the socio-ecological transition at the heart of our concerns, while collaborating closely with industrial, academic and civil society stakeholders.

SE Transition

In my capacity as Socio-Ecological Transition Project Manager at the T.URN Institute, I am engaged in the design and implementation of teaching focused on climate change and sustainable development. I also play a role in promoting interdisciplinary research in ecological transition while extending my interactions with the socio-economic fabric of the Normandy region, where I aspire to forge links and develop collaborative projects that have a positive impact on society and the environment.

Outside the lab

In addition to my professional commitments, I am involved in a range of activities and associations which allow me to apply certain aspects of my work to initiatives anchored in the local social fabric. The enrichment that I attribute to each meeting and interaction strengthens my commitment and broadens my horizon.

Art & Science

I am passionate about the synergy between art and science. I can collaborate with artists to develop installations that merge scientific research and creative expression or I create links between artists and scientists for the development of joint projects.

Since 2023, I have partnered with the visual artist Marie Mellier to offer graphic conferences for children and the general public.

For me, these initiatives represent a unique way of communicating science in an accessible way, while exploring new forms of interaction and dialogue between disciplines.

science diffusion


I appreciate actions intended to make science accessible to the general public. I have written popular articles for 'The Conversation' and I also participate in events or conferences intended for the general public to shed light on various aspects of my research or TSE project manager work.  

Recently, I have focused on raising awareness about climate change, a topic that I consider of critical importance. Whether through graphic conferences in collaboration with artists or through public interventions, my objective is to contribute to a better understanding of current scientific challenges, in particular climate change and its impacts.

graphic visualization


Scientific visualization and graphic design occupy a special place in my professional career. I am convinced that these disciplines, when applied to science and more specifically to numerical calculation, have the power to make complex concepts understandable and engaging.

Whether for the development of digital models, the representation of data or the creation of interactive content, my goal is to combine digital science and aesthetics. This multidisciplinary approach not only aims to facilitate the understanding of the phenomena studied, but also to open new horizons of questioning and exploration.
