My scientific work is principally focused on analytical and numerical studies of out-of-equilibrium complex systems, such as classical and quantum turbulent fluids and transport of particles by turbulent flows. I manly interested in applications of statistical mechanics and dynamical systems to the modelling and understanding of multi-scale systems. Among all these systems, one that especially captured my attention is superfluid turbulence. I am very interested in the dynamics of quantum vortices and their interactions. 

In general, I am interested in statistical mechanics, nonlinear science and theoretical aspects of turbulence.

In my webpage you will find my publications, a description of my current projects and different updates in the News section. You will also find several movies showing the dynamics of superfluid vortices, quantum vortex reconnections, superfluid vortex tangles and particles immersed in superfluid turbulent flows.

FOUCAULT : A self-consistent model of quantum turbulence in superfluid Helium
The aim of our project is the elaboration of a realistic model of quantum turbulence for superfluid Helium. This new model describes the “normal fluid” and the “superfluid” components of the flow by using the Navier-Stokes equations and the vortex filament method respectively. Peculiar to our approach is the modeling of the mutual interaction between these components. This mutual interaction plays an essential role in determining the similarities (and the differences) between QT and classical turbulence (CT).
