Christophe Gissinger (Associate professor at ENS) works in the Non-Linear Physics group of the LPENS.

Christophe was nominated Junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF).

“My research focuses on non-linear physics and out-of-equilibrium systems, mostly in fluid mechanics. Combining laboratory experiments, theory and numerical simulations, I study different phenomena such as hydrodynamic instabilities, surface waves, dynamical systems and turbulence. My current work focuses more particularly on magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), that is, the study of the dynamics of fluids that conduct electricity. In recent years, I have notably studied new mechanisms involved in the generation of stellar and planetary magnetic fields, the stability of electromagnetic induction pumps, as well as the dynamics of the oceans in the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. “
