David obtained his Master’s degree in reactor physics and nuclear engineering from Grenoble Institute of Technology, during which time he followed both JUAS courses on Accelerator Physics and Technology.
He then completed his PhD at CERN, as a member of the Collective Effects section in the Accelerator and Beam Physics group. He contributed to beam instability studies for the LHC, the High-Luminosity LHC and the HE-LHC project.
David is now a post-doctoral researcher at SOLEIL, the French national synchrotron light source, working on lattice robustness and correction studies for the SOLEIL upgrade project, and contributing to beam physics studies for the current storage ring.
In parallel, he participates in outreach activities as a CERN and a SOLEIL guide, and in teaching activities for the “Large Facilities” Master’s degree at Paris Saclay University.
