After a MSc in Statistical Physics, a PhD in Earth Sciences, and a Postdoc in (Soft) Condensed Matter Physics, I have been an As. Prof. of Quantitative Hydrogeology at UR1 since september 2006, working at the frontier between the forementioned disciplines.
You can read more about my background here.

My scientific interests include flow (including two-phase flow and the flow of foams) and transport (including reactive transport and mixing) in porous and fractured media and the physics of clay minerals (swelling, water diffusion, complex fluids made of clay suspensions). In the last three years I have also been studying foam flows in porous media. I have mostly worked with experiments (table-top home-based setups and synchrotron experiments) and data treatment. I also do a bit of numerical simulation. In 2013 and 2014 I was PI for the EC2CO-INSU project on transport in the unsaturated zone. I am currently co-supervising one PhD student, with two others starting in the autumn of 2015 in the framework of the ERC Consolidator project ReactiveFronts (PI: Tanguy Le Borgne).
My research page will tell you a bit more.
My publications are listed here. You can also have a look at my Google Scholar page.

I mostly teach various aspects of Fluid Mechanics applied to flow and transport in the subsurface, as well as some Hydrology (hydrological risks and the relevant Mathematics/Statistics). Between septembre 2008 and august 2012 I was responsible for the environmental course of the Master program "Systèmes Complexes Naturels et Industriels" of Université Rennes 1.

I am also currently in charge of coordinating the organisation of the Rennes Interdisciplinary School on Complex Systems, and a member of the Organization Commitee for the 3rd Cargèse School on Flow and Transport in Porous and Fractured Media, which will be held in July 2015.
