The main focus of my research is young exoplanet characterization. This is key to understanding the evolutionary processes yielding the observed diversity of the exoplanet population. I make use of both ground and space-based observations and work on strategies to efficiently characterize young planets despite the constraints imposed by their young stellar host, namely stellar activity.

After a Bachelor’s in engineering Sciences completed in 2015, I went on to do a Master of Research in astrophysics for two years in Toulouse, France. In 2022, I finished my PhD at the University of Southern Queensland, in Australia.
