Currently I am CNRS researcher in the group Nanostructures at the Nanosecond (NS2) at the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides (LPS) in Orsay where I have set up a low temperature scanning probe facility with shot-noise capabilities.

My research interests are mainly in the field of condensed matter physics, more specifically correlated electron physics including high (and low) temperature superconductivity, heavy fermion systems, colossal magnetoresistance, ... My favourite experimental tool to study these systems for a better understanding of their properties and what drives them is scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy (STM/S). Other techniques I have experience with are angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES), atomic force microscopy (AFM), low energy electron diffraction (LEED), and material characterisation techniques such as resistivity, magnetic susceptibility and Laue diffraction.
