I am an associate professor (nontenured) in physics at the undergraduate school CY Sup and the graduate school CY Tech of CY Cergy Paris Université, France. I teach at every university level from the first year of the Bachelor’s degree to the last year of the Master’s degree. I perform my research service at Laboratoire de Physique Théorique et Modélisation, which is part of CY Cergy Paris Université and of the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. Theoretical but closely connected with experiments, my research activity mainly deals with the topics listed below.

Bose-Einstein condensation
Superfluid hydrodynamics
Nonlinear waves and their modulations
Quantum correlations and entanglement
Quantum simulation
Analog Hawking radiation from acoustic black holes
Nonequilibrium quantum many-body dynamics after quantum quenches

Quantum fluids of atoms in ultracold dilute vapors
Quantum fluids of exciton-polaritons in semiconductor planar microcavities
Quantum fluids of photons in cavityless nonlinear dielectrics

Nonlinear Schrödinger–Gross-Pitaevskii equation (standard or dissipative)
Korteweg-de Vries equation (standard or modified)
Gardner equation
Linear-response theory
Weakly nonlinear multiscale expansions
Whitham modulation theory
Low-energy quantum field theory
Bogoliubov theory
Popov theory
Quantum Boltzmann equation
Born approximation
