I work as a CNRS postdoctoral researcher within the Complex-Quantum-Systems group of the Laboratoire Kastler-Brossel (Université Pierre-et-Marie-Curie, France).

Prior to coming back to France, I was a SiQuro postdoctoral fellow at the BEC Center (Università degli Studi di Trento, Italy), working within the group of Iacopo Carusotto. My research focused at the time on the investigation of superfluid and quantum features in fluids of light propagating in cavityless nonlinear optical media. Collaborators: Mathias AlbertMatthieu Bellec, Alessio Chiocchetta, Daniele Faccio’s « Extreme Light » group, Claire Michel-Morani, and Lorenzo Pavesi’s group.

I completed my PhD at the Laboratoire de Physique Théorique et Modèles Statistiques (Université Paris-Sud, France) under the supervision of Nicolas Pavloff and within the École Doctorale de Physique de la Région Parisienne (ED 107). My thesis work mainly focused on the study of the acoustic Hawking radiation in Bose-Einstein condensates. I was also interested in the superfluid and dissipative properties of exciton-polariton condensates as well as in the formation of nonlinear waves in these systems and in two-component atomic condensates. Here are my PhD manuscript (in French) and the slides of my PhD defense. Collaborators: Denis BoironIacopo Carusotto, Alessandro FabbriAnatoly M. Kamchatnov, Yaroslav V. Kartashov, Alessio Recati, Christoph I. Westbrook, and Paweł Ziń.

Nonlinear and quantum fluctuations in matter and/or light fluids.— Atomic Bose gases, semiconductor-cavity exciton-polariton gases, cavityless nonlinear optics, Bose-Einstein condensation, superfluidity, nonlinear fluctuations, quantum fluctuations, strong interactions, quantum quenches, prethermalization, thermalization, quantum simulation, analog Hawking radiation, analog dynamical Casimir effect, etc.
