After majoring in mathematics at the Sorbonne University in Paris, Louis followed the Science master’s program at Brown University, which he graduated from in 2019. He then started his PhD at King’s College London in the Theoretical Particle Physics & Cosmology (TPPC) group.

Louis’ current research mainly focuses on thinking of new probes of light dark matter (<GeV), an increasingly popular area of research among dark matter phenomenologists. Harnessing the combined expertise in theoretical and experimental high energy particle physics, astrophysics and condensed matter from King's TPPC, Experimental Particle & Astroparticle Physics and Theory & Simulation of Condensed Matter groups has produced a sleuth of new signatures leading to world-leading sensitivities to dark matter interactions. 

Louis' other research topics also include ultralight dark matter phenomenology and the black hole information paradox.
