I am a junior researcher at Inria in the I4S team since October 2020. Before that, I was a member of the Rolls-Royce Vibration University Technology Centre, part of the Mechanical Engineering department. My postdoc was about the optimization of dry friction dampers for gas turbine engines, involving non-linear vibrations and global optimization based on meta-modelling and uncertainty propagation.

I received an engineering degree from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon in 2015 and a MSc in Mechanics and Structural Dynamics in parallel. I received a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the Lyon University in 2018.
