My main research interest is gravitational-wave astrophysics, and my current research covers a wide range of topics in both the theoretical and experimental aspects of the detection and study of gravitational waves. In particular, I am interested in parameter estimation for gravitational-wave sources using Bayesian Methods, and I focus on spinning compact binaries coalescence and also on the computational interface with the LIGO Virgo interferometer network. In addition, I am also interested in the design of advanced gravitational-wave detectors control strategies.

You can find a link to my publications on SPIRES here, and to the ADS database here.


I started my higher education in Bordeaux, at a french classe préparatoire aux grandes écoles after which I became an engineering school student at the École Nationale Supérieure de Physique de Strasbourg (now Telecom Physique Strasbourg) in France. After spending 3 months in the Hamaguchi Laboratory in the graduate school of engineering of Osaka University in Japan, I went to the Department of Physics & Astronomy of Northwestern University in Evanston, USA to finish a master of astrophysics from the Observatoire astronomique de Strasbourg of the Louis Pasteur University in France. I stayed at Northwestern University for gradutate school and upon graduation in 2012 I went to the California Institute of Technology, in Pasadena, as the Tolman fellow.
I joined the division of Astrophysical and Cosmological Relativity at the AEI in September 2014.
