Biographie :
Graduated in 2011 with a Master degree in oceanography (speciality: modelling and data analysis) at the Sorbonne university Pierre and Marie Curie (PARIS 6, France), and in 2015 with a PhD degree in numerical modelling at the University of Toulouse Paul Sabatier (France), I am currently postdoctoral researcher at UMR MARBEC( Ird, CNRS, univ Montpellier) in France. My first focus goes in general to develop mathematical and numerical models in order to understand complicated oceanographic and environmental issues. I am also interested in data analysis relying on my strong skills in statistics and applied mathematics. I am familiar with lot of programing languages such as Matlab, Fortran, Java, C++ and SQL that I am frequently using in my research activities . I am currently working on the "Summer H2020" European project ( Our objectives mainly focus on the study of mesopelagic fish at the global spatial scale, estimation of their vertical distributions and migratory movements, as well as the assessement of the role of diel vertical migrations in the carbon sequestration and in the biogeochemical cycling. During the period 2017-2019 , I worked on the European project SAFENET (, which brought together partners from three countries (France, Spain and Italy). The main objective of this project was to identify coherent networks of marine protected areas in the Mediterranean Sea in order to maximize over the long-term ecological and socio-economic benefits for the stakeholders. Long before, during my PhD thesis, I worked on the consequences on marine biota of the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant occurred on March 11, 2011. I developed a numerical model to study the transfer of radiocesium to pelagic organisms of the Northwestern Pacific ocean and to estimate their contamination levels.
