I finished my PhD thesis doctoral studies at Geneva Observatory, on June 15th 2012, under the direction of Dr Corinne Charbonnel.

My work consists in the study of the impact of different transport processes of chemical elements and angular momentum on the evolution of low and intermediate-mass stars and the associated nucleosythesis. I compute the evolution of these stars with the STAREVOL code.

I focus essentially on rotation-induced mixing and thermohaline convection in giant stars (RGB and AGB). These processes change the surface chemical composition, which allows a direct comparison with observations both in the field and in open cluster stars.
