About Me

I'm a Ph-d student working on paleoclimatology and more precisely on Ice cores in Antarctica

I love to travel, I think about my future and past trips all the time.

I also love music, cinema, literature, and arts in general. I do a lot of photography, and especially film photography. I have a lab in my basement in Paris to developp films, in black and white and in colors ! I also like to try old photography processes, like daguerreotypes. I'm a photographer for a music webzine :

Recently, I became a beekeeper. I'm president of an association taking care of 2 hives on the roof my school, and it's very cool.

I want to speak 6 languages by the end of my Ph-D, and to be able to speak with almost everyone in his language ! It's not going so well though...


I just want to see a lot of things by travelling, and take beautiful pictures of beautiful things or people
