Teaching

I teach general as well as specialized courses on astronomy but also multidisciplinary courses. Most are taught at University of Liège (see list - detailed notes with references are provided to all registered students either through e-campus or direct email). I also supervise students for bachelor, master or PhD theses for work related to massive star research or multidisciplinary studies.
