Ph.D. in Philosophy

I am very pleased to announce that the University of Geneva has awarded me the title of Doctor of Philosophy for my dissertation entitled « The Asymmetric Nature of Time ».

Even if writing a thesis is, in many respects, a solitary adventure, it could not be pursued without the support of many professors, colleagues and friends. I would like to take advantage of this post to thank all those who have accompanied me during these four wonderful years.

Ph. D. Defense

I am pleased to announce that my Ph. D. defense will take place on Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at 9:00 am at the University of Geneva.

Given the circumstances, it is unfortunately not possible to attend « in person ». However, you have the possibility to follow my defense in videoconference via the zoom application.

If you are interested, please write me an email and I will send you the zoom link.
