I am a CNRS Researcher (CR1) at the Laboratoire de Mécanique des Fluides et d’Acoustique (LMFA).
My research activities concern internal waves dynamics, both in the ocean and in the lab.
I am involved on laboratory experiments on rotating and stratified flows, and mainly interested in internal waves dynamics.
The STRATIMIX project funded by the ANR, starting january 2014, aims at designing a stratified version of the historical Joule’s experiment.
In 2008-2011 I worked on the Coriolis Platform of LEGI, largest turntable in the world, now under reconstruction at the Saint Martin d’Hères Campus.
|The Coriolis Platform||RV Pelagia|
I also work on in situ measurements in collaboration with Hans van Haren from the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ). I participated to four research cruises, in the Canary Basin, the Brazilian Basin and the Mediterranean Sea.
This collaboration started during my post-doc at the NIOZ in 2007-2008. Before this, I defended my PhD on 24th nov 2006 at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France, under the direction of Thierry Dauxois. The topic of my PhD was :
Experimental study of internal gravity waves in the presence of topography. Emission, propagation, reflection.
