1.       Can you tell us a bit more about your career?

I have spent my entire career as a Research Engineer at IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN). My research work focuses on 0D to 3D computational approaches of turbulence, spray, turbulent combustion and emissions, applied to the automotive and aeronautical sectors.

Before joining IFPEN, I worked as a Research Associate at Imperial College London (UK). Since 2013, I teach part-time internal combustion engines at the université Sorbonne Paris Nord (Paris 13).

I hold a double Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Politecnico di Torino (Italy) and université de Technologie de Compiègne (UTC). I also have a PhD in Energetics and Transfer from the École Polytechnique de Toulouse (CERFACS laboratory).

2.         What does your job entail?

There are two main aspects to my new job at IFP School: Help define new training programs, a very important aspect at the moment since things are moving very quickly in the mobility sector, and teach in the field of new hybrid and electric powertrains.

3.       What drove you to teaching?

I am very happy to be able to contribute to the training of young engineers.
I love teaching, being able to pass on knowledge to students. The satisfaction of learning is unparalleled! You can't teach if you don't understand, and understanding is something that has always motivated me.

4.       What would you like to pass on to your students at IFP School?

I would like to give them the right tools to build their future jobs of tomorrow.
