After my Master degree in Nanophotonics at University Clermont Auvergne, I was awarded an I-site CAP20-25 Fellowship to initiate research on innovative technology. It was followed by a PhD in 2019 in Nanophotonics and Metamaterials under the supervision of Dr. Moreau Antoine at Pascal Institute, Aubière, France. I worked on evolutionary optimization of photonic structures such as antireflection coating or more complex structures based on 2D photonic crystals.
