S. Bontemps) on high-angular resolution observations of massive stars in Cygnus X.
Between 2008 and 2011, I co-directed the Ph.D. theis of Quang Nguyen-Luong (advisor F. Motte)
on molecular cloud formation out of colliding flows.
Between 2009 and 2012, I co-directed the Ph.D. thesis of Pascal Tremblin (advisor E. Audit) on
numerical modelling and observations of pillars and globules.
