Personal profile


I graduated from the University of Lyon in 2012 with a Master in Nanoscale Engineering. I then moved in Geneva to do a PhD in the Group of Applied Physics where I developed and studied solid-state quantum memories for light based on rare-earth ion doped solids with application in quantum communication. I joined the Quantum Material and Application lab led by Thomas volz in 2017 to work on nanodiamonds optical sorting. Since then I also have been expanding my research activities, using optical tweezers in microfluidic chips to study differents nanoparticles in wet environment and developing a new optical trapping setup in vacuum for levitodynamics studies.

My areas of research expertise includes quantum light-matter interface, quantum information science, optomechanics, spectroscopy of optical centers in solids, cryogenics, lasers, solid-state physics.
