Research
String theory
My research is principally on flux compactifications in string theory (see my review article), in particular :
 solutions with fluxes
 fourdimensional low energy effective theories
 moduli fixing
 geometry of internal manifolds / generalized geometry / double field theory
String theory at IPhT
String theory in greater Paris region
