Stéphane Barland was born in 1974 in Paris. He studied for his master degree in Physics in Nice. He then prepared his PhD about the formation and control of localized structures in semiconductor lasers in Palma de Mallorca (Spain) and defended his thesis in Nice in November 2001. He went then back to Palma de Mallorca for a post-doctoral stay, followed by a two year post-doctoral fellowship in Florence working on semicondutor lasers and optical feedback. He got a permanent position as researcher in CNRS in 2004. Since the beginning of his carreer, he has coauthored about 40 papers in peer reviewed international journals.
He is coordinator of the MOLOSSE project, which aims at bridging the notion of temporal cavity solitons in a passive nonlinear optical cavity with semiconductor laser mode-locking.
