Julien Javaloyes was born in Antibes, France. He obtained his M.Sc. in Physics at the ENS Lyon and obtained a PhD in Physics at the Institut Non Linéaire de Nice / Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis where he studied the recoil induced instabilities and self organization processes occurring in cold atoms. He worked on delay induced dynamics in coupled semiconductor lasers during a postdoctoral stage in Brussels and on VCSEL polarization dynamics in Palma de Mallorca. He was a Research associate at Glasgow University where provided for the modeling of the dynamics of monolithic semiconductor diodes. He joined in 2010 the Physics Department of the Universitat de les Illes Balears as a Ramón y Cajal fellow where he is now an assistant professor. His research interests include laser dynamics, atom-light interaction modeling and applied numerical bifurcation analysis.
