I was born in Brest (France) in 1979, received a MSc in Physics from Université Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg, and a PhD degree in Physics from the Institut National des Sciences appliqués (INSA) in Rennes. After a post-doctoral work on nanowire growth from 2006-2008 at the Nanometer Structure Consortium/Division of Solid State Physics, Lund (Sweden), I joined the Institut d'Electronique de Microelectronique et de Nanotechnologie (IEMN), Villeneuve d'Ascq, as a CNRS Research Scientist (permanent position) in 2008, where I initiated a III-V nanowire research activity. Since February 2013, I am an ARC (Australian Research Council) Future Fellow at the Research School of Physics and Engineering (RSPE) Australian National University (ANU).

Research interests

My main research interests concern control and understanding of growth processes in low dimensional III-V semiconductors, based mostly on an experimental approach. I am also very interested in tuning the materials properties down to the single bilayer level, for fundamental physics studies and novel nanodevices (e.g. quantum dot laser, photodetectors, field effect transistors).
