Francois received an M.S. degree in electronic engineering and Ph.D. degree in astrophysics at Paris Observatory. His thesis concerned the development of a far-infrared heterodyne receiver for astronomical observations. He then carried his research at the Laboratory for Physical Sciences, College Park, USA, for the development of graphene infrared detectors. He also studied the magneto-optical properties of novel Weyl materials. He joined Chalmers to work on a gate tunable superconducting quantum device. In his spare time, he enjoys playing water polo with the Goteborg team.
