28/09/2018: New paper with Nicolas Scepi on dwarf novae showing the impact of wind-emitting discs on the disc instability model.

02/05/2018: New paper with my Postdoc Antoine Riols on dust settling in protoplanetary discs. We show how dust settling is affected by non-ideal MHD effects. Comparison with preliminary observation data show excellent agreement, more is coming!

05/01/2018: New paper with my PhD student Nicolas Scepi on dwarf novae accepted. Accretion in quiescence is difficult with MRI only!

I am a member of the CNRS Research staff in the high energy phenomena, accretion disks and plasmas group (SHERPAS) of the Institute of Planetology and Astrophysics of Grenoble (IPAG). My research interest includes hydrodynamic and MHD turbulence in accretion discs, disc winds, dynamo theory and planet formation. More informations, including pretty pictures and videos are available in the research pages.

Collaborators and projects


My research is currently funded by CNRS (Centre national de la recherche scientifique), PNPS (Programme national de physique stellaire) and ANR (Agence nationale de la recherche) under contract ANR-17-ERC2-0007 (2017-2019).

Former group

I am a former member of the Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics group at DAMTP where I was employed for three years (2007-2010) as a postdoctoral research associate.
