Florian Goirand graduated in 2017 with a Magistère of Fundamental Physics at the University Paris-Saclay and Msc. in Physics of Complex Systems conjointly supervised by University Paris-Saclay, University Pierre et Marie Curie, and University Paris-Diderot (France), during which he specialized in statistical physics/mechanics. His undergraduate research notably focused on stochastic processes and out-of-equilibrium physics by studying Diffusion-Limited Aggregation (DLA) and the glass transition. During his Ph.D., done conjointly at Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse and Observatoire des Sciences de l’Univers de Rennes (France), he worked on designing statistical flow and transport models in brain microvascular networks. In 2021, he joined Karen Alim’s group to study the (self-)organization of optimal flow networks with direct application to morphogenesis. He also analyzes (collective) migratory dynamics of Physarum polycephalum.
