Welcome to my website

Here you will find all sorts of information about my work as a Research Scientist and Engineer and some examples of the projects I have been involved with. I am an Associate Scientist at CNRS, the French National Centre for Scientific Research, working at the Institute of Earth Sciences of Orléans (ISTO) where I am leading the Porous Media Research Group. I have more than 10 years of experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics in both academia and industry. My interest in fluid mechanics is very broad including flow and transport in porous media, multiphase flow, complex and non-Newtonian flow, and superfluid. I am considering a wide variety of scales ranging from nanometers to kilometers. I am always eager to solve new challenging problems. Feel free to contact me for more information. Enjoy your visit.

Graph on Computer


My work focuses on fluid flow and transport in porous media from the pore to the reservoir scale. I develop multi-scale mathematical models and computational tools. My research on porous media applies to very different domains such as chemical engineering, nuclear engineering, and subsurface engineering.



I am teaching Computational Fluid Dynamics using the open-source software OpenFOAM since 2009. Today, more than two hundred students, Researchers, Engineers in both academia and industry attended my classes. Feel free to contact me if you need on-site training.


At Stanford University, I am also giving lectures on fluid flow at the pore-scale.
