About

I am a CNRS researcher working at the Geophysical and Industrial Flows Laboratory (LEGI) in Grenoble, France. My interests revolve around turbulent flows, that is, the disordered motion of fluids such as water or air flowing at relatively high speeds. Turbulent flows can be extremely complex to comprehend, and my focus is on trying to describe and improve our understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of turbulence and how these affect the dynamics of objects (such as particles) immersed in them. My approach is mainly a theoretical and numerical one, based on direct numerical simulations of the equations describing turbulent flows.
