Professor of Physics, Michigan State University

Since my university studies, first in Germany and later in France, I involved myself often in very general problematics, such as the foundation of quantum mechanics (Bell inequality), precision measurements to search for nuclear color-VanderWaals forces, nuclear energy and environment, formation of superheavy systems, and very recently the possibility of resonant neutrino scattering.

Recently, I was mainly working on experimental nuclear physics, and more specifically on the spectroscopy of exotic nuclei. This domain is at the frontline of present nuclear physics and is extremely challenging for an experimental physicist. Many new techniques have to be developed in order to study very rare nuclei far from stability.
