After graduating from Stanford University with a Ph.D. in Physics under the supervision of Prof. Bruce Macintosh, I was awarded a David & Ellen Lee Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship to join the exoplanet imaging group lead by Dimitri Mawet at the California Institute of Technology. Leveraging my background in applied mathematics acquired during my master’s degree at the French leading Aerospace engineering school, I have been pioneering statistical and instrumentation techniques to push the frontiers of planet detection and characterization. For example, I developed a planet detection algorithm for large high-contrast imaging surveys, measured the first precise planetary radial velocities, and measured the carbon-to-oxygen ratios of a multi-planet system therefore constraining its formation history.
