Research engineer at PMC since October 2018

After a PhD at LIMSI (Orsay) and GeePs (Gif-sur-Yvette) on the numerical modeling of the thermomagnetic convection in ferrofluids, I started a postdoc at PMC with Hervé Henry on the numerical modeling of the convection and the mass transfer in corium, a multiphase mixture resulting of a reactor core meltdown.
