About Me

I received my high school `Baccalauréat’ with Honors from Lycée A. Daudet, Tarascon, France. I graduated from a double degree program in August and October 2006. I received the `Diplôme d’ingénieur de l’École Centrale de Lyon’ (equivalent M.Eng. Engineering Sciences) from the École Centrale de Lyon, Écully, France and the M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Penn State University, University Park, PA.

I have been a member of the American Geophysical Union since December 2005 and of Tau Beta Pi since December 2008.

My current research interests focus on electrical breakdown at various pressure, theory of lightning, blue jets, and gigantic jets, comparative planetology, in particular, the comparison of lightning on Earth, Jupiter, and Saturn, and stellar wind interaction with planets’ ionosphere.
