PhD, Université Paris-Sud/Université de Sherbrooke
I grew up in the sunny town of Aix-en-Provence, France and moved to Paris for my undergraduate studies, where I majored in Fundamental Physics at Université Paris-Sud, Orsay (now called Paris-Saclay). For my MSc and PhD, I specialized in Condensed Matter Physics and learned several experimental techniques (Mössbauer spectroscopy, NMR, single crystal synthesis, transport measurements including Angle-Dependent Magneto-Resistance). I did a joint PhD on cuprate superconductors between Université Paris-Sud (with Dorothée Colson) and Université de Sherbrooke, Canada (with Louis Taillefer), during which I grew a special interest in measurements under extremely high magnetic fields (static and pulsed, up to 90 Tesla). I currently work with Peter Armitage using time-domain terahertz spectroscopy to study the linear and non-linear electrodynamic response of different kinds of « quantum materials » (unconventional superconductors, frustrated magnets, topologically non-trivial materials).
