Welcome to my Home page

I am a permanent staff of the Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Université Libre de Bruxelles as a FNRS senior research associate (Maitre de Recherche). My research focuses on the topics of stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis and includes: pre-main sequence stars, AGB stars, stellar rotation, primordial stars, binary evolution and nucleosynthesis. I am also interested in stellar hydrodynamics and involved in the development of the PHANTOM SPH code.
