Passionate about music, a jazz pianist and a composer in his leisure time, Tristan Gilet nonetheless turned to physical engineering studies at the University of Liège. He carried on his training at Toulouse, at Supaero - the National Higher Education College of Aeronautics and Space – whereof he picked up his pilot’s license – and at the MIT at Cambridge (Massachusetts). He is now a doctoral student at the University of Liège. His thesis is on the physics of liquid droplets.
