Hi, I am a physicist currently working on plasma physics, turbulence, astrophysics and Space Weather.

I did my PhD at the Laboratoire de Physique des Plasmas in Palaiseau, France, from 2020 to 2023, under the supervision of Dr. Fouad Sahraoui and Prof. Sebastien Galtier. It was about the Kolmogorov’s exact law formalism to describe the turbulent transfer, or cascade, of total energy through large to small scale. I generalised the theory to collisionless plasma such as the Solar Wind and apply it in Parker Solar Probe observational data and also to simulated turbulent 3D fluid datasets from the Observatoire de la Cote d’Azur (France).


Research Interests:

I am interested in all physics research, but I am mainly focused on:

  • Plasma physics
  • Astrophysics
  • Turbulence

I try to keep a multi-methodological balance between theory, simulation and observation. I am also interested on laboratory experiments.
