I am currently working as a CNRS researcher (Chargé de Recherche) at the Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire de Physique in Grenoble, within the Statistical Physics and Modeling group.

I am interested in the structure and rheology of soft amorphous materials, like glasses, granular systems or dense suspensions. My main focus is the way these materials behave close to liquid-solid transitions, such as jamming, yielding or glass transitions. I use both analytical and numerical tools to tackle these problems.


Nov 29, 2021 Our paper “Dynamics of microstructure anisotropy and rheology of soft jammed suspensions”, is now published in Physical Review Letters.
Nov 19, 2021 Our paper “Microscopic theory for the rheology of jammed soft suspensions”, is now published in Physical Review Letters.
Nov 10, 2021 Nicolas Cuny just graduated, congrats!
May 1, 2020 The paper “A constitutive model for simple shear of dense frictional suspensions”, with Abhi Singh, Jeff Morris and Morton Denn, has been awarded the 2020 Journal of Rheology Publication Award!
Apr 1, 2020 Our paper “Density waves in shear-thickening suspensions”, with Guillaume Ovarlez, Anh Vu Nguyen Le, Wilbert Smit, Abdoulaye Fall, Guillaume Chatté and Annie Colin is now published in Science Advances.
