My self-summary
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.

Having recently moved from France to England, I am looking forward to meet people here, discover nice places, and improve my English. But I am also eager to discuss with persons from abroad to exchange ideas and thoughts: any opportunity to expand my horizon is most welcome.

To say a few words about me, I am a quite introvert guy, fond of science, arts and philosophy (although I have only basic knowledge of the last two). I also enjoy running, which I find a nice way to discover a place and set myself challenges.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently focused on finishing my PhD and starting a post-doctoral research project. I basically spend my time trying to discover new aspects of black holes, quantum gravity and all that.

I spend the remaining time listening to music (especially classical music, but I am open to virtually everything), reading or trying to write poetry, and running.
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 Rings", "Méditations poétiques",...

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.
Six things I could never do without
science
poetry
running
music
some time alone
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
Reading, writing, or sleeping, depending on my mood.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I write poetry from time to time (in French).

You should message me if
If you want to exchange ideas on science, arts, or philosophy (I don't know much about the latter two, but very willing to learn.)

If you can help me improve my English or discover nice places in and around Durham.

Or if you find dynamical instabilities of quantum fields in black hole geometries very cool :)
