After a master degree in Orsay (France) in condensed-matter physics, I did a PhD in theoretical physics at Université Paris-Diderot (thesis advisor Cristiano Ciuti) on quantum Hall systems in the ultrastrong light-matter coupling regime. I then moved to Canada in the group of Sajeev John (UofT) where I have worked on the possibility to achieve a new ultrastrong coupling regime with large cooperativities using photonic band gap materials. Since 2015, I am working in the group of Guido Pupillo at the University of Strasbourg. I am particularly interested in studying how one can modify the properties of condensed-matter systems by coupling them to a cavity-type structure in its vacuum state. These include for instance charge/exciton transport in molecular ensembles and electron-phonon coupling/superconductivity.
