Fabien Paillusson (2006) – Senior Lecturer
I chose the PCS master because it appeared to me as the best compromise between the breadth of topics covered, a strong focus on statistical mechanics and an overall rigorous theoretical treatment of the subject matter. After graduating, I embarked on a PhD project on some statistical mechanics aspects of nanoparticles interacting with DNA at the LPTMC at Université Pierre and Marie Curie (now part of Sorbonne University). After obtaining my PhD, I have held postdoctoral positions at the University of Cambridge (UK), the University of Barcelona (Spain) and Durham University (UK). These experiences have been invaluable to widen my portfolio of research expertise and enrich my understanding of statistical mechanics. I am now a senior lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Lincoln (UK) where I teach physics and mathematics while continuing to work on my research interests. This position has also enabled me to promote a respectful dialogue between the Sciences and the Humanities by opening a Mathematics/Physics with Philosophy degree programme in 2018 and by contributing to various public events combining physics and history since 2016.
