Research interests

I am a young physicist who initially graduated from the engineering school “Telecom Bretagne”. I am passionate about biomedical engineering and chose to perform a Photonic research Master.

Finally, I am currently performing a an interdisciplinary PhD at the interface between physics of ultrasound waves and Neuroscience.
