I am a French engineer who graduated with a diplôme d'ingénieur (master's degree) in Aeronautics from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon. I specialised in aerospace propulsion systems during several internships. I am currently looking for an opportunity in fluid, thermal or propulsion systems design, development and analysis in the aerospace industry.
At the beginning of my studies I chose to enroll in a university, driven by an interest in research. After 2 years of undergraduate physics and mathematics, I specialised in Mechanics theory during my last year of Licence. I rapidly grew interested in a more applied and broader education. After having gone through a highly selective application process I entered the Ecole Centrale de Lyon, a top-ranked French engineering school. During the two first years of the engineering cycle, I developed a strong theroretical base in a broad range of engineering topics.
After these two years, I wanted to apply my skills in a professional field. Therefore I chose to do a gap-year, during wich I completed two internships. In Cambridge (UK) I worked on applied research and practiced my English during 3 months. I then moved to a second long-term internship during wich I worked as an engineering intern in the space industry. This particular experience really sparked my interest in pursuing a career in the aerospace sector.
Back to the engineering school for my final year, I specialised in Aeronautics with a focus on fluid dynamics. I readily applied this knowledge during my final year project, where I worked on launcher propulsion. I also chose to do this final project in Germany, as a second international experience and to practice my German.
Following my previous experience and education I am looking for an opportunity in fluid, thermal or propulsion systems design, analysis or development in the aerospace industry.
As an engineer I specialised during my last year in Aeronautics, with a strong focus on fluid dynamics, turbomachines, heat transfers and combustion theory. This was put into practice during various group projects with extensive use of modern engineering tools such as Matlab/Simulink, Catia V5 or Ansys Fluent. It also helped me to learn the value of communication and team work.
During my two internships within Airbus group I worked on space propulsion, where I focused on fluid and propulsion systems analysis and development using modern multi-physics simulation tools like AMESim or EcosimPro. I also worked on simulation at the equipment level, developing strong skills in CFD model development and scientific programming (C++).
I also lived in the U.S.A. and Spain and worked in Germany and U.K, where I became proficient in English, Spanish and intermediate in German.

It is crucial for future launchers programmes to develop robust and versatile tools for system modeling in order to accelerate the design iterative process. I worked within the Upper Stage Liquid Propulsion department under supervision of a Liquid Propulsion Engineer to develop a CFD model of the cryogenic tank embarked on the Ariane launcher upper stage propulsion system.
Define, implement and validate a CFD module for the cryogenic tank, to be included in the existing model of the propulsion system for increased accuracy.
Tools: C/C++, VisualStudio, EcosimPro
The tank CFD module was delivered as a validated and robust simulation tool for the analysis of future launcher missions.
Multi-physics modeling tools are essentials in the development and analysis of sub-systems for future satellite platforms. As a support to a Propulsion System Architect, my work was to assist the development of a new fluid architecture for the satellite plasma propulsion system.
Develop and validate modeling tools for the plasma propulsion system in order to assist design trade-offs and associated hardware testings
Tools: AMESim, Excel, C
The models were validated by existing data and equipment tests. The propulsion system development was put several months ahead of the programme schedule partly through my work in model development and system simulation. The selected architecture was validated by a successful test campaign at system and equipement levels.
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are a promising material due to their impressive electrical and mechanical properties. The Electric Carbon Nanomaterial group of the Material Science department at the University of Cambridge focus on the study of the properties and production of carbon nanotubes for industrial applications. I worked there as a visiting student, assisting a PhD candidate in his work.
Study of electrical properties at high frequencies of Carbon nanotubes compounds (fibre, film) for data and power transmission.
Tools: Matlab, NI LabVIEW
Development of efficient Matlab models for the analysis of measured data. Determination of a more reliable measurement technique from literature. Doubled the available data by additional measurement campaigns.
MOOCs platforms offer open-acess courses of renowned universities, where one can learn on various subjects following a structured path (course, exercises, graded tests) to certification.
To progress further I took courses on fluid and propulsion systems and web development
