I am an Experimental Physicist with a PhD from
Université Pierre et Marie Curie
Universidad de Santigo de Chile.
I have worked in fracture of thin sheets, Colloidal suspensions, and Friction & Contact mechanics.
Currently, I am a starting faculty at the
INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes
working in problems in soft matter and extreme mechanics in collaboration with
Laboratoire Jean Le Rond ∂'Alembert

LU3ME111: is an optional module in mechanics for L3 students at Sorbonne Unverisité. Five sessions experimental course (20 hours):
— With A. Lazarus
- Session 1: Young's modulus measurements by uniaxial traction.
- Session 2: Young's modulus measurements by deflection of an horizontal beam under its own weight.
- Session 3: Young's modulus measurements by the elastic vibration of a vertical beam.
- Session 4: Scaling law for the buckling instability of a vertical beam.
- Session 5: Hertz's law of sphere-plane contact.
ABAQUS : is a final term project that is proposed to 10/15 Master students (1st year) at Sorbonne Unverisité. Four projects to be developed in ABAQUS for plates and rods:
- Project 1: Cantilever, deflection of a beam under its own weight.
- Project 2: Bend-twist instability for curly rods.
- Project 3: Lateral buckling of a wide plate.
- Project 4: Stick-slip of a compressed ribbon.
PHY405: Exercises for electromagnetism and optics for L2 students in chemestry at Unverisité Grenoble-Alpes (33 hours):
— With Gabriel Seyfarth
- Unit 1: Electrostatics.
- Unit 2: Magnetostatic and kinetics.
- Unit 3: Electromagnetic/optical waves and applications to chemistry.
