Research
My research focuses on experimental fluid mechanics. My last work aims at understanding the swimming of micro-organisms, typically algae. I study their phototactic behaviour and their swimming in complex environments through series of experiments completed by theoretical models. I am also particularly interested in interfacial and wetting problems, like the dynamical behaviour of drops and bubbles at the vicinity of a solid surface.
