Présentation

Since my Master's degree in Physics and my PhD thesis in Sciences completed at the University of Namur (UNamur), Belgium, I have studied the physical origins of visual effects developed by natural organisms.

I co-authored a book entitled "Natural Photonics and Bioinspiration" with Prof. Olivier Deparis.

Currently, I am carrying out my research, as a Honorary Senior Lecturer and a Researcher at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Exeter, UK and the Department of Physics of UNamur.

Beside my interest in scientific research, I also enjoy teaching and outreaching activities.
