Work:

1987-1989 Thesis : "surface instabilities under parametric excitation",
       Faraday instability in vertically vibrated thin layer of fluids and granular media,
       other instabilities (convection, period doubling) in vibrated granular beds,
       experiments and modelization by amplitude equation normal form.

1990 Dynamics and instability of grains in an horizontal rotating drum,
       experiments modelled by  stick-slip instability of the surface flowing layer.
       Same experiments and instability for a fluid layer (spatio-temporal intermittency).

1991-1996 Fully developed turbulence, vorticity and low pressure filaments :
       their first observation in fully developed 3D turbulent flow in a new geometry,
       study of their characteristics and dynamics, model experiments on a
       single vortex to study the interaction of vorticity and strain.

             Phyllotaxis : modelization of the appearance of the leaves to reproduce
       the botanical arrangement and explain the appearance of the Fibonacci series,
       as well as the selection between the whorled and the spiral modes.
       Simulation of real specimens, study of abnormal transitions.

1997-2000 Grain avalanches on a rough inclined plane, study of the dynamics of
       grains in the hysteresis between the dynamical and static angle.
       Modelization and experiments of granular surface flows (on a pile).

2000-2004 Venation: studies of the net formed by the veins of plant leaves,

2001-÷      Dunes : Field studies of the dune field of Tarfaya (Morroco - 2005).
      Description and measurement  of the motion of the barchanes, destabilising effect of the winter
      storms. Reproduction of miniaturebarchanes under water. Reproduction of other types  of dunes
      underwater (transverse, longitudinal and star dunes).

               Song of the Dunes :  Studies (in the field ­Morroco, Chile, China, Oman- and in the lab) of the song of the dunes.

2005-÷ Study of Avalanche Fronts in a channel, explanation of the frontsŪ constant velocity.
