Research activities

I am an assistant professor at the Laboratory of Civil and Mechanical Engineering of the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) of Rennes. My current research activities are mainly focused on the study of transfer phenomena in porous media and associated flows. I am particularly interested in problems related to erosion, filtration and particle transport in porous media such as soils. Previously, I worked at the Research Institute of Civil Engineering and Mechanics (GeM), at the IRSTEA (Grenoble) and at the Institute of Physics of Rennes.

  • Flows of particles through a porous medium

    The handling of granular matter is often a source of many problems. One of them is size segregation, which implies a no homogeneous distribution of the various species of grains, this makes very difficult the realization of homogeneous mixtures. ... more

  • Wave breaking and run-up

    My research activities are related to the transformation of water waves near the shores. My work is aimed at studying the run-up of these waves when breaking can occurs. ... more

  • Internal erosion in soils

    Hydraulic structures ensure the protection of persons and goods, the production of electricity and water storage. The failure of such structures can lead to significant human and material disasters. This can be caused by several factors, but the predominant one is the internal erosion phenomenon. ... more
