I'm currently postdoc at the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris (IAP). I use computational methods to study the evolution and dynamics of galaxies in order to reproduce observational data highlighted by the Gaia mission.
My doctoral research at IAP focused on the nature of the dark matter and more particularly on the inconsistency of inner DM density profiles in dwarf galaxies, known as the cusp-core problem. I perform simulations with the high performance collisionless N-body code, Gothic. This gravitational octree code runs entirely on GPU with adaptive time steps. My high resolution approach is the pathway to high resolution that is far beyond that of any cosmological simulation.
My work on globular clusters will be also pursued in the context of the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) mission. Since January 2019, I am involved in a LISA working group with the primary motivation to explore the existence of intermediate massive black holes in globular clusters.
