Welcome on my Homepage!



You will find here some details on my research and teaching activities. I made my PhD at the Institute of Celestial Mechanics (Paris Observatory, France), on the long-term orbital evolution of the Galilean satellites of Jupiter. Then, I joined the University of Namur, and since then I study the rotation of the natural satellites and Mercury. My study of Mercury was the opportunity to be associated with the Bepi-Colombo space mission. During my scientific evolution, I slowly drifted from celestial mechanics to planetary geophysics. I now particularly focus on the physical processes affecting the rotation of the natural satellites, in relation with a realistic modelling of their interior.
