I am a theoretical physicist in love with biology. I specialize in the mechanical problems that arise at all scales of life, from biomolecules to cells and tissues. I develop mathematical models, usually inspired by continuum mechanics and dynamical systems. I use a broad range of analytical and numerical tools, including GPU-accelerated computing. I am used to working in interdisciplinary teams, particularly with biologists.

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Karsten Kruse, at the University of Geneva, Switzerland. Previously, I did my PhD in the group of Martin Lenz at the University of Paris-Saclay, France.
