My scientific work focuses on describing the multi-scale physics of Turbulence, combining the theoretical toolbox of a statistical physicist with the very general idea that the Euler equations might be hidden within  turbulent structures.

I defended my PhD thesis in 2013 under the supervision of Bérengère Dubrulle, within the Service de Physique de l'Etat Condensé at CEA Saclay. I then described an analogy between the large-scale structures  observed in the Von-Karman Experiment and the statistical equilibria of the axially-symmetric Euler equations.

My successive post-doc have led me from Nice (OCA) to Western Massachusetts (Umass Amherst) and now Rio de Janeiro (
IMPA).

My current matters of (scientific) concerns  relate to exploring the connections -- from a physicist viewpoint-- between notions of solutions to the Euler equations and some non-equilibrium properties of turbulence.
