Professeur de physique à l'Université Paris-Sud, École Polytechnique

My research interest is on turbulence in astrophysics and cosmology. I use both high level mathematical tools and massive numerical simulations to study the properties of turbulence and discover new fundamental laws. The domains of application are diverse: solar wind plasma, supersonic interstellar medium, solar coronal heating, dynamo in stars and planets and primordial gravitational waves. Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and general relativity are the main equations used to investigate these questions.
