I am Assistant Professor in materials physics at the University of Lille, France, where I work at the UMET laboratory. My main centers of interest are the mechanical properties, dislocations, and diffusion in complex materials such as ceramics and minerals, which I study with atomic-scale simulations. To know more about my research topics, refer to this page.

After studying physics at the University of Rennes, France, I performed my PhD thesis at the Phymat laboratory at the University of Poitiers, France. After that, I worked as a post-doc researcher at the KIT in Karlsruhe and the Fraunhofer IWM in Freiburg, Germany. Then I worked as a post-doc researcher at the UMET laboratory at the University of Lille, France. You may read more about my cursus on this page.

I am also the author of Atomsk, a code for creating and manipulating atomic systems for simulations and visualization.
