Originally from Paris, France, I received a bachelor degree in 2010 from École Polytechnique. 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.
After the completion of my PhD at Observatoire de Paris (LESIA) in 2014, I spent 4 years in Baltimore (MD), as a postdoc, first at at the Space Telescope Science Institute, then at Johns Hopkins University and finally as a Carl Sagan Fellow at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Since 2020, I am a Chargé de Recherche CNRS (Tenured Scientist) at Observatoire de ParisEnglish CV (PDF) | French CV (PDF)
