I am a research scientist studying extra-solar planets in the new Astronomy & Astrophysics department at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). I have been developing statistical and instrumentation techniques to push the frontiers of planet detection and characterization with the largest telescopes in the world, both on the ground (Keck) and in space (JWST).
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).
