I am a Maître de Conférences (lecturer) in physics at Université Savoie Mont Blanc in the French Alps. Since May 2022, I am the deputy director of Laboratoire d’Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique Théorique (LAPTh), where I carry out research in theoretical particle physics. My teaching activities concern the Mesures physiques department of the Institut Universitaire de Technologie (IUT) d’Annecy as well as the Master programme Physique Subatomique et Cosmologie of Université Savoie Mont Blanc and Université Grenoble Alpes.
My research activities cover phenomenology beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. More precisely, I am working on collider, flavour, and dark matter aspects of new physics models, with particular focus on the interplay of these topics. I am also interested in precision calculations and computational techniques such as machine-learning. I am founding member of the DM@NLO collaboration aiming at more precise predictions related to dark matter calculations.
I am involved in the scientific management of IRN Terascale (working group Beyond Standard Model and scientific management committee), GDR Intensity Frontier (scientific management committee), and GDR Deep Underground Physics (working group Future Experiments). I am also member of the organisation commitees of the annual French school École de Gif and the international workshop series Physics at TeV colliders (PhysTeV Les Houches). Since 2015, I am member of Section 29 of the Conseil National des Universités and the recruitment advisory board (Section 29) within Université Savoie Mont Blanc.
In my free time, I enjoy sports, travelling, photography, and cooking.

My teaching activities mainly concern the Mesures Physiques department of Institut Universitaire de Technologie (IUT) Annecy within Université Savoie Mont Blanc. In addition to the courses listed below, I am currently director of studies for the department’s second-year students.
Mathématiques 1 – Outils mathématiques
Introductory mathematics course for students in their first semester of the Mesures Physiques programme. I am in charge of the lecture, which is given in the form of short pedagogical videos.
Mathématiques 2 – Outils mathématiques
Advanced mathematics for students in their second semester of the Mesures Physiques programme. I am in charge of the lecture and some of the exercise classes.
Short course on statistics for students in their third semester of the Mesures Physiques programme. I am in charge of the lecture.
Introductory course to radioactivity and nuclear physics, especially industrial and medical applications, for students in their fifth semester of the Mesures Physiques programme. This course is taught in a combined lecture and exercise class.
Mathématiques 5 – Outils mathématiques avancés
Advanced mathematics for students in their fifth semester of the Mesures Physiques programme. I am in charge of the lecture and some of the exercise classes.
Mathématiques 6 – Mathématiques pour ingénieurs
Advanced mathematics for students in their sixth semester of the Mesures Physiques programme. This course is taught in a combined lecture and exercise class.
