Biography

Born 1968 in Bordeaux, France. Holds a BSc and an Agregation in Physics from the Ecole Normale Superieure, Cachan, France; an MSc and a PhD in Mathematical Physics from University College Dublin, Ireland; and an HDR in Mechanics from the Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France.
Previously, worked as a Junior Marie Curie Fellow (FP4) in Mathematical Physics at University College Dublin, Ireland; as a Visiting Assistant Professor in Mathematics at Texas A&M University, USA; and as a Charge de Recherche with the French National Research Agency CNRS at the Institut d'Alembert, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France.
Is currently a Senior Marie Curie Fellow (FP7) in Mechanical Engineering at University College Dublin, Ireland.
Research interests are in non-linear elasticity, in stability of elastomers and biological soft tissues, and in linear, linearized, and non-linear waves.
