Research statment

I am a CNRS researcher at the Laboratoire de Physique Statistique at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, working with the Non-Linear Physics Group .

My research interests lie in the fields of Turbulence, MHD turbulence, Dynamo theory, and their Astrophysical and Geophysical applications. I am interested in problems in simple geometries, and dynamical equations in their simplest form (neglecting when possible physical effects like for example compressibility) in order to get a basic understanding of the behavior of a system. Analytic methods and numerical work are equally important in my research.
