Stars, Planets & Discs
in multiple stellar systems
WELCOME! I am a theoretical astrophysicist and my main topic of research is planet formation in protoplanetary discs. These are systems made of 99% gas and 1% dust orbiting young stars. I use analytical calculations, theoretical models, and numerical simulations to understand planet formation in multiple stellar systems (flybys, warps, spirals, binaries, etc.). By doing so, I seek to better understand how and where baby planets form in discs. This is particularly exciting given the latest observations obtained with SPHERE and ALMA. Want to know more? Check out the Projects page.
I am currently a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow at the Institut de Planétologie et d'Astrophysique de Grenoble (IPAG) in the Odyssey team. I am a member of the Nucleus for Planet Formation (NPF) and the Dustbusters RISE collaboration.
