Who am I ?

  • 1968 : Born in France, near Geneva.
  • 1986-1989 : Maths and physics studies.
  • 1989-1992 : Geophysics engineering school in Strasbourg.
  • 1996 : Doctoral Thesis in internal geophysics on : "The figure of the Earth : Gravimetry, stress regime and free oscillations" at IPG Paris and Strasbourg (Abstract).
  • 1997 : Assistant professor (geophysics) in the Earth sciences lab. of "Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon".
  • My research interest is global geophysics, especially : gravity, shape of the Earth, deviatoric stress, hydrostatic and non hydrostatic Earth ; a litle bit of seismic modes ; the mechanical behavior of phase changes. Also some history of sciences : works of D'Alembert on the shape of the Earth. And also some curiosities as the (supposed) link between the Moon and human birth rate.
  • My teaching interests are the mathematical and physical aspects of earth sciences : mathematics, signal processing, inversion, wave propagation, gravity and general geophysics.
  • I like this picture :

  • [In french] Les hauts salaires gagnent-ils beaucoup au total ? Ma reponse, sous forme de petite application mathematique, est ici.
  • I discovered that the trompe l'oeil painting can be marvelous with the fine work of Ludovic Bottosso.
