I am a full professor in the Physics Department of School of Sciences and Technologies, with my research in the Unité Matériaux et Transformations, in the group entitled Earth and Planetary Materials.

My research is about the formation and dynamics of the Earth and the interior of planets. I perform high pressure and high temperature experiments, characterizing Earth materials using X-rays on large scale facilities such as synchrotrons. You will find more details on my research activities by visiting my own personal webpage or my twitter feed, which I maintain regularly.

I teach at the School of Sciences and Technologies of the Université de Lille, both at undergraduate and graduate levels. My position is attached to the Physics Department but I also teach some classes for the Department of Earth Science.
