I am a Research Scientist at Indiana University, Department of Intelligent Systems Engineering. I am working on the intersection of scientific visualization and molecular dynamics. I have a strong background in computational chemistry simulating different nanostructures, such as polymers, graphene, fullerenes, and carbon nanotubes. I also develop software to visualize these structures as they evolve in time. These days I am extending my work to all kinds of dynamics from particles colliding to flocking simulations and network dynamics. Beside my research, I teach data science on-ramp courses focused on principles of machine learning and implementation of machine learning algorithms in different programming languages.
I received my PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Sherbrooke (Canada) at Laboratory of Physical Chemistry of Matter (LPCM), under supervision of Professor Armand Soldera. My PhD thesis entitled "Atomistic Simulation of Fluoropolymers: Impact of Regio-defects on Characterization of Polyvinylidene Fluoride" addresses the molecular simulation of polymers. The objective of my thesis was to understand the link between molecular and macroscopic systems of polymers by combining simulation, experiments and theory. During my PhD, I had the honour of being a co-author in the book entitled "Handbook of Fluoropolymer Science and Technology". I'm the author of several publications in renowned international journals including Polymer and Polymer Science.
