Case Western Reserve University

After studying at the Ecole Polytechnique of Lausanne and Paris, I decided to specialize into theoretical physics and started my PhD in Cambridge, UK, from where I graduated in fall 2005. I then moved to McGill University in Montreal for a first postdoc before joining the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and McMaster University in Waterloo, Ontario for a second postdoc in 2006. In 2009 I obtained an assistant professorship grant from the Swiss national foundation and joined the cosmology group in Geneva University, Switzerland in January 2010. I recently joined the physics department at Case Western Reserve University and will start teaching and be a full member of the Particle-Astrophysics Theory group in spring 2012.
