Research activities:

turbidity Since September 2015, I am back on turbidity currents and avalanches. As usual, I am dealing with the study from an experimental point of view. Currently, I am mainly focusing on erosion by the flows (underwater turbidity currents, powder-snow avalanches). I am also working on sediment erosion by a stirring grid. My main collaborators are Hervé Michallet, Emil Hopfinger, David Hurther and Florence Naaim.
bubble I spent a couple years working on two-phase flows with bubbles in collaboration with Jean-Louis Marié and Michel Lance at LMFA. The main topic was the study of the forces applied on a single bubble in a simple flow.
thermal convection I previously worked with Bernard Castaing and Francesca Chillà at the ENS de Lyon on thermal convection. We tried to better understand the ultimate regime for high Ra numbers.
avalanche I did my phd-thesis on powder-snow avalanches at IRSTEA (ex-CEMAGREF)  in Grenoble . My phd-advisors were Emil Hopfinger and Christophe Ancey. I worked on the dynamics of the flows.

(note that the lack of publications between 2011 and 2015 is linked to my decision to take 3 years (2012 to 2015) away from work to raise my kids)
