Hello, I am a CNRS researcher, member of Singular group.

We are interested in topological structuring of matter (in particular liquid crystals) using confinement and electromagnetic excitation and vice versa: structuring the electromagnetic waves (light) via the interaction with the structured matter.

My research experience includes research activities in Kiev National University (master program), Roma Tre University (PhD program) and University of Bordeaux (PostDoc) in the fields of soft condensed matter, light and material topology, structured light, optomechanics, polarimetry, optical imaging and nonlinear optics.
