About

Who am I?

I grew up in Southern France, where the Pyrénées mountain range meet the Mediterranean sea. I studied in Perpignan 🇫🇷, Marseille 🇫🇷, Uppsala 🇸🇪, and Paris 🇫🇷. I shortly worked at the European Space Agency in Noordwijk 🇳🇱, qualifying the Descent Camera for the Exomars 2016 lander (which made an impressive crater on Mars) before completing a PhD in astronomy at Uppsala University 🇸🇪 with a 1-year studentship at the European Southern Observatory in Garching near München 🇩🇪🍺.

Since Sept 2020, I am a Thunberg fellow at Uppsala University and the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study 🇸🇪.
