PhD students
  • Bayane Michotte de Welle is doing her PhD with me and Roch Smets (LPP) on the statistical analysis of the magnetosheath and dayside magnetic reconnection
  • Gautier Nguyen is doing his PhD with me and Dominique Fontaine (LPP) on the statistical analysis of solar wind structures and magnetopause reconnection, using machine learning : thesis PDF
  • Jeremy Dargent is doing his PhD with me and Benoit Lavraud on modeling and observing magnetic reconnection at the Earth Magnetopause, in connection with the NASA MMS mission. thesis PDF (french)

Intern students
You can find the intership topics, current or past, following this link.
  • Olivier Michel works with me for her 5 months Master2 internship. Olivier works on modeling the spreading of asymmetric reconnection lines with 3D Hybrid PIC simulations.
  • Bayane Michotte de Welle works with me for her 5 months Master2 internship. Bayane is building machine learning algorithms to detect and model the Earth bow shock using multiple satellite missions.
  • Thibault Payet is doing his 6 months Master 2 internship with me on developing a new massively parallel hybrid code.
  • Louis Vignoli, Bruno Regaldo-saint-blancard and Brice Bakkali-Hassani worked with me for 6 months on the automatic detection of coronal mass ejections in WIND data, using machine learning algorithms.
  • Jeremy Cassier – 3rd year of SupAero. Jeremy worked on implementing a relativistic pusher in my Particle-in-Cell code and on correctly initializing Maxwell-Juttner velocity distribution for ion-electron relativistic current sheets, following a method initially developed by Mickael Melzani. This internship was co-supervised with Illya Plotnikov at IRAP.
  • Jeremy Dargent – M2 Astronomie et Astrophysique d’Ile de France. Jeremy successfully implemented a kinetic equilibrium for asymmetric tangential current sheets in Michael Hesse’s fully kinetic code. Jeremy continued his work as the begining of his PhD.
Teaching in Classes
I taught during the three years of my PhD (monitorat),  at university of Versailles St Quentin. I taught mainly to 2nd year student at the university and at ISTY engineering school.

  • Electromagnetism (Tutorial and practical classes)
  • Wave optics (Tutorial and practical classes)
  • Special relativity (Tutorial classes)
