Loïc Villain

After having completed a PhD (thesis defended on December 2002) under the supervision of S. Bonazzola at Département d'Astrophysique Relativiste et de Cosmologie (DARC) from Paris-Meudon Observatory (a lab which has been incorporated in LUTH), I have been a post-doc at DAA (Valencia, Spain), at CAMK (Warsaw, Poland) and at DFA (Alicante, Spain). There, I mainly worked with P. Haensel and J.A. Pons on various topics in the fields of numerical relativity and compact astrophysical objects. Since September 2009, I'm a Maître de conférence (Lecturer) at the University François Rabelais of Tours, doing my research on those topics at Laboratoire de Mathématiques et Physique Théorique (LMPT), teaching at the Department of Physics, and spending part of my time in the popularization of physics.
