My area of research is in subatomic physics, more precisely in nuclear and astroparticle physics. My research activity spans about 14 orders of magnitude in energy, from the MeV (1MeV=106eV) in low-energy nuclear physics to the hundreds of EeV (1EeV=1018eV) in cosmic-ray physics. In nuclear physics, my interest lies in a group of light nuclei far from stability called halo nuclei. These nuclei distinguish themselves by their large spatial extent arising from one or two very loosely-bound nucleons in low orbital momentum orbitals. This research is carried out at national and international accelerator facilities. I am also involved in a more applied project, which aims at developing a skin patch for radiotherapy using the nearby 1MW TRIGA reactor. At the very end of the energy spectrum, I am studying Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays as a member of two large collaborations: the Pierre Auger Observatory, located in Argentina and the Extreme Universe Space Observatory (JEM-EUSO), to be deployed on the International Space Station. To this day, no one knows where these cosmic-rays (the highest energy particles in the Universe!) come from. We do have some hints though!
