Térence spent his childhood between the beautiful city of Bordeaux and the wonderful landscapes of the Lot-et-Garonne, in the South West of France. He was always curious about science and fascinated by what was at the limit of his own understanding of the world.
After his undergraduate degree in mathematics and physics, in 2012, he chose to follow an engineering course in ocean engineering at the Ecole Centrale de Nantes. For several years, he has collaborated with several researchers in various fields and locations. His research studies ranged from the dynamics of semi-open atolls flushed by the tide and/or by the swell in Polynesia to the impact of microplastics on primary and secondary production in the North Sea passing through the hydrological behavior of mountainous and tropical watersheds in New Caledonia.
After all these experiences, in 2019, Térence realized that what constituted his greatest source of interest was to cross physics and biology. He, therefore, quit his engineer position, to resume his studies in Master in Physics for the Living, at the University Toulouse 3. He is currently doing his PhD with Olivier Liot (IMFT) and co-supervised by Morgan at LAAS-CNRS. He is experimentally studying the clogging of a model pore by a yeast suspension, a subject that lies at the frontier of porous media, fluid mechanics, soft matter, and microbiology.
