Welcome to my homepage! I am a theoretical physicist studying elementary particles. I am a senior research fellow at CERN in the Theory Department.

My main research interests are higher-order QCD calculations (precision calculations) in Higgs and weak boson physics at hadron colliders, as well as recent and growing activities in quantum computing. I have also investigated neutrino mass models, supersymmetric theories, and effective field theories. I am also one of the developers of the codes NMSSMCALC and NMSSMCALCEW which are designed for the study of the Higgs boson masses and decays in the framework of the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM), and the developer of the VBF Higgs pair production code in the VBFNLO collaboration. I have been contributing to the POWHEG-BOX and several of my programs can be found on the webpage of the POWHEG-BOX project.

Before joining CERN, I spent five years from 2014 to 2019 as a senior postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof.  Dr.   Barbara   Jäger at the Institut für Theoretische Physik (ITP) in the University of Tübingen (Germany) and three years at the ITP in the Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (Germany) as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof.  Dr.   Margarete   Mühlleitner from 2011 to 2014. I got my PhD in France in 2011 at the Laboratoire de Physique Théorique in the University of Paris Sud (Orsay) under the supervision of Dr.   Abdelhak   Djouadi. Before my PhD I got my Master in theoretical physics at the École Normale Supérieure de Paris and spent my undergrad years at the École Normale Supérieure de Paris-Saclay which I entered after a very competitive exam which I passed, granting me a fellowship for four years as a civil servant.

On this website you will find mostly informations about my current work. One part of the website is dedicated to some miscellaneous, mostly in French, that I did up to my Master. By the way the picture you can see above was taken in the Russian Caucasus range in 2016 and is a view over the Elbrus twin summit. The west summit is 5642m high, making it the highest peak in Europe. After particle physics, hiking/alpinism is my second passion in life!

The study of the Higgs boson

After the discovery of a Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012, particle physicists are now studying its properties. The biggest question today can be put simply as: have we found the (single) Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model, or is it the first step into an entire new sector of physics?

This is what underlies my line of research on the Higgs boson.


One of the most attractive frameworks to go beyond the conventionnal Standard Model of particle physics is Supersymmetry (SUSY). It is basically a new fundamental symmetry between bosons and fermions. Because this symmetry needs to be broken this predicts a brand new zoo of particles, one of which being a natural candidate for dark matter.

This is my main framework to study the effects of new physics on the Higgs sector.
