I am a strange thing. A poet's heart with a scientist's spirit. An ambitious mind in a skinny body, from which it continuously tries to escape. I dream my life and live my dreams.
To be slightly more precise, I am a PhD student in physics. I am quite devoted to my research and try my best to achieve something that would be both interesting for myself, improving the perception I have of the world, and useful for others, maybe leading to developments in other fields. I really like these two aspects of science : the solitary day-to-day work which makes me learn a lot as well as discovering new things, and possible applications which can help society as a whole.
I am a relatively shy and lonely person. I usually prefer spending the evening alone working or having meaningful discussions with a few friends than partying. For life is too short to waste any opportunity to do something meaningful.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a PhD student in theoretical physics in Paris, France. I
basically spend my time trying to discover new aspects of black
holes, quantum gravity and all that jazz.
The first things people usually notice about me
Good question I actually never asked them (and this would be a
little bit awkward, wouldn't it ?). Probably I look quite shy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Among others, "Iliade", "Odyssea", "Les fourmis" (and
sequels), "Les confessions" by St Augustin, "Lord of the
Music: I enjoy listening to all kinds of music, except maybe rap
(although I reckon some rap songs are better than others.) I love
classical music, especially Bach, Mozart, Rimsky-Korsakov,
Stravinsky, Tchaikovski, Debussy, Fauré, Milhaud and Bondeaux.
The six things I could never do without
something to think about
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The wonders of the Universe and the physical concepts to describe
or explain them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Studying or working on some project, maybe wondering about Quantum
Mechanics or Relativity while listening to the New World Symphony
or something similar.
You should message me if
You find dynamical instabilities of quantum fields in black hole geometries very cool, you have no idea what the above means but still find it cool, or you are fond of some topics in science, philosophy or arts and want to exchange ideas on it.
