Florian is the manager of the Yale Quantum Institute. French rocket scientist with a theater background turned quantum science manager, he develops science outreach programing for the Yale and New Haven community to demystify quantum physic and science in general, and to make it fun, in the hope to encourage new generations of students to consider a career in STEM. Florian is the creator and producer of the YQI Artist in Residence program and draws from his theater background to help create installations and exhibitions, live shows, album, and music videos.

Florian earned his PhD in 2014 from Aix Marseille University in France for his experimental work on droplets evaporation under microgravity. During his thesis, he collaborated with the French (CNES) and European (ESA) space agencies to perform experiments abroad the zero-G aircraft where he loved to float in weightlessness with his experimental rack. He then joined the laboratories of Yale SEAS Dean Kyle Vanderlick and Eric Brown, where he developed a liquid dynamo to be able to answer magneto-related questions rising from Earth, Sun, or other astral objects magnetic field studies.
Outside of science, Florian is an avid rower, enjoys snowboaring, theater, and spending time with his cat Raccoon.
