I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur in Nice, France. My current work deals with a description of the particle dynamics in quantum turbulence using a numerical approach.

Previously, I did my PhD at the Laboratoire de Mécanique des Fluides et d’Acoustique in Lyon, France. There, I attempted to describe a wall-bounded turbulent flow from a Lagrangian perspective, that is, from the point of view of fluid tracers. My PhD thesis is available here.
