As a student, I long hesitated between space system engineering and astronomy, between building objects that go to outer space or studying it directly. I decided to work in the field of astronomical instrumentation, specifically for exoplanets, which allows me to combine these two passions: building the most challenging space instruments to observe distant worlds.
I received a Bachelor degree from École Polytechnique (2010, Paris), a Space Engineering Master degree from ISAE-Supaero (2011, Toulouse) and an Astrophysics Master degree from Université Paul Sabatier (2011, Toulouse). After the completion of my PhD at Observatoire de Paris (LESIA) in 2014, I spent 4 years as a postdoc in Baltimore (MD), first at the Space Telescope Science Institute, then at the Johns Hopkins University. Finally, I was a NASA Hubble Fellow (Carl Sagan) at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory for 1 year in Pasadena (CA). Since 2020, I am a Chargé de Recherche CNRS (Tenured Scientist) at Observatoire de Paris.English CV (PDF) | French CV (PDF)
