Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be a scientist. At the time, the idea was more about wearing the laboratory white coat and playing with chemistry. Couple of years later, I decided to study Engineering. To me it was the perfect balance between practical work and physic experiments.
My first experience with research was in summer 2009. I was working in a CFD group to develop a software use during mesh adaptation to interpolate the solution on the newly created mesh. I really enjoy the experience, working alongside other students, researchers and professors. Even if I was still an undergraduate student (young and inexperienced!), I felt I was contributing to the work of the laboratory.
I then immediately decided to follow-up with a Master degree after my Bachelor. You can find more information about my research during my Master’s degree. During theses 2 years, I met a lot of people and one of them, my current mentor/advisor Jérôme Vétel, suggest me to pursue a Ph.D. at the brand new Laboratory of Fluid Dynamics (LADYF) at Polytechnique Montréal. I accepted the challenge and did not look behind since that day. You can find information about my Ph.D. in experimental fluid dynamics.
