I was a Ph.D. student at the Free University of Brussels (VUB) with a Research Assistant fellowship from the Research Foundation—Flanders. My doctoral research, in the group of Prof. Dr. Irina Veretennicoff and Prof. Dr. Jan Danckaert, was focused on the physics of electromagnetic metamaterials and applications thereof in photonics. I worked on dissipative structures and solitons in electromagnetic systems with (nonlinear) left-handed metamaterials, on the dynamics of semiconductor ring lasers, on the miniaturization of electromagnetic devices below the wavelength of light, on transformation optics, and on the classical analogue of electromagnetically induced transparency and slow light in metamaterials.
After obtaining my PhD, I joined the group of Prof. Costas M. Soukoulis at Iowa State University and Ames Laboratory (a national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy).
Since 2013, I am a faculty member at the Department of Physics at Chalmers University in Sweden:Philippe Tassin
