About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher CNES fellow at IPAG in Grenoble since January 2018.

My favourite topic is the rotation of low-mass stars (0.4-1.2 M) and more specifically the modelling of all the physical mechanisms involved in its evolution.

These mechanisms are:

  • Γwind: the stellar wind that extract angular momentum from the stellar surface
  • Γdisc: the star-disc magnetic interaction
  • Γc-erad :the internal redistribution of angular within the stellar interior/evolution of the internal structure
  • Γtides : the impact of the planetary migration on the stellar rotation
  • And other external torques

For more information, take a look at the Research page.

I'm also involved in the development of the stellar evolution code STAREVOL.
