To be defined


Born in Ixelles in 1981, he received his diploma in engineering (physics department) from the university of Brussels in 2005.
His master thesis was entitled : "Microscopic study of 14O + p elastic scattering".
He then worked towards a PhD degree at the OPERA-photonique Department of the Applied Science Faculty of ULB thanks to a Doctoral fellowship of the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research (FRIA).
He got the PhD degree in Applied Physical Sciences in November 2010 by defending his thesis entitled
"Etude des structures dissipatives dans les cavités optiques passive : théorie et experience"
("Study of the dissipative structures of passive optical cavities : theory and experiment").
He stayed one year as a Postdoc in Brussels and then spent three years at the photonics research group in Ghent university to work on nonlinear silicon photonics.

He is now an associate research fellow at the OPERA-photonique group in Brussels.
