I am currently an Assistant Professor (Maître de conférences) in the Centre de Physique Théorique (CPHT) of the École polytechnique (France). Before, I have been a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Mainz (Germany), the University of Paris-Sud (France) and the University of Liège (Belgium). I have been a F.R.S.-FNRS Postdoctoral Researcher. I obtained my PhD at the University of Liège in 2007, under the supervision of Maxim Polyakov, with the F.R.S.-FNRS Research Fellow grant.

My research interests encompass particle physics, fundamental interactions, spin physics, symmetries and symmetry breakdowns, light-front wavefunctions, baryon tomography and (multi-)parton distributions, kT-factorization, quarkonium production, higher-spin physics, solitons and instantons.

My publications are on INSPIRES, Google Scholar and arXiv.
