Why am I doing Hadronic Physics?

I decided to study Hadronic Physics to learn about the elementary constituents of matter. I started with a bachelor in Chemistry before studying Physics at Paris 6 University (UPMC now Sorbonne), in France. After graduating I got a Master degree with a speciality in Particle Physics ("Nuclei, Particles, Astroparticles and Cosmology") in 2011, also at Paris 6 University, and I obtained my PhD in 2014 at Paris Sud University (Orsay, France). My topic was about the multidimensionnal structure of the proton in term of quarks and gluons and I had the chance to approach it from an experimental and a phenomenological point of view. Since I started research, I had opportunities to work with several collaborations and passionated people accross the world, which brought me to the U.S. and to V.T..
