About Me
Study and Development Engineer (Toulouse). I have a scientific culture relatively diversified, mainly focused on applied mathematics/physics; I keep moving in discovering and learning every day.

During my training as geophysicist @EOST (Strasbourg), I mainly specialized in geophysical data analysis and processing as well as in scientific programming. Furthermore, my final-year internship in R&D completed @CLS Group (Toulouse) and my research experiences (@EOST/@IPGS, @DIAS) allowed me to confirm my aspiration and my passion to oceanography, geophysics and applied sciences broadly speaking. In addition, I was able to learn the values ​​of work at VIVIRAD S.A. which involve daily conviviality and commitment to its customers and collaborators.

One of my professional vocation will be to collaborate in teams; indeed, my mid-term career goal would be to work on projects which would have a global reach

  • Checking the bias of Potsdam value for surface gravity observations over Ireland using Satellite Gradiometry

    Context of the study :
    https://www.dias.ie/cp/geo/geo-gravity-data/
  • I unified the Northern Ireland gravity data with those from the Republic of Ireland, i.e. data owned by DIAS (GMT)
  • I made a cubic interpolation of unified data sets and I found the reference gravity field of the Bouguer anomalies occurring in the DIAS gravity data set
  • I compared the interpolated surface gravity (i.e. DIAS data) with those derived from global gravity field models, the satellite GOCO05S model and the combined EGM2008 model
    Eventually, I was able to explain the origin of the bias.
