I work on analytical solutions of the equations of general relativity using the post-Newtonian formalism in order to describe the motion and gravitational waveform of binary systems of compact objects in the inspiralling phase. I am notably interested in different physical effects on the gravitational wave such as spins or finite-size effects.

Here are links to my publications: from Inspire, arXiv, and from the ADS database.


I am from France where I obtained my Bachelor's degree in 2015 and my Masters degree in 2018 both at Université Paris-Sud. From 2018 to 2021 I did my PhD at the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris under the supervision of Guillaume Faye and Luc Blanchet where I learned the post-Newtonian formalism. I started my first postdoc at the AEI during October 2021 in which I am still working on this topic.
