I am a research scientist studying extra-solar planets at the Center for Astrophysics & Space Sciences (CASS) at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). I have been pioneering statistical and instrumentation techniques to push the frontiers of planet detection and characterization. I am also contributing to the developments of a number of instruments on the largest telescopes in the World.
I originally grew up in France and my journey toward astronomy started during my master’s degree at the French leading Aerospace engineering school (ISAE-Supaero), where I acquired a strong background in applied mathematics. I moved to California in 2014 to do my Ph.D. with Prof. Bruce Macintosh contributing to one of the largest direct imaging survey of exoplanets. I was then awarded the David & Ellen Lee Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship (2019-2022) to develop high spectral resolution techniques to study the atmospheres of exoplanets in the group led by Dimitri Mawet at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech).
