I am a permanent CNRS researcher at the Institut Jean Lamour, in Nancy (France).

As a PhD student at Université Paris Sud I started studying spintronics & nanomagnetism  at ultraslow timescales, such as the creep regime of magnetic domain wall motion. In 2015 I joined the University of California Berkeley as a postdoc to study ultrafast magnetic phenomena by using femtosecond laser pulses.

Now, I focus in the study of spintronics at ultrafast timescales by combining optics, electronics and magnetism.

I was recently awarded the 2022 Edouard Branly and Suzanne Zivi prices for my work.
