Germain Rousseaux is a Physicist with a strong interest in interdisciplinary studies. He is interested in physical analogies à la Clerk-Maxwell. His main research topics are physical hydrodynamics, relativities (special and general), classical electromagnetism, granular physics and nonlinear physics. He obtained his PhD at ESPCI Paris in 2003. After several post-doctoral positions at the University of Nice and ULB (Belgium), he joined the CNRS in 2007. Germain Rousseaux is currently CNRS Research Director at the Pprime Institute in Poitiers where he is co-leader of the Curiosity team.
A Descent Into The Maelstrom or Analogue Gravity (Black Holes, Wormholes and White Fountains) in Hydrodynamics
“I became possessed with the keenest curiosity about the whirl itself. I positively felt a wish to explore its depths, even at the sacrifice I was going to make; and my principal grief was that I should never be able to tell my old companions on shore about the mysteries I should see.”
Edgar Allan Poe, A Descent Into The Maelstrom (1841).
