I am interested in understanding the various aspects of the atomic nucleus, from its birth to its limits of existence passing by its structure and symmetries. I study these various aspects through precise measurements of the mass and decay properties of unstable nuclei using ion trappings technique. By extension, I am also interested in the production and delivery methods of short-lived nuclei.
