Undergrad research

April – July 2012
Internship at the Observatoire de Lyon, focused on polarized radiative transfer of Lyman-alpha line in Lyman-alpha “blobs”, under the supervision of Jérémy Blaizot and Anne Verhamme;
May – July 2011
Internship at Oxford University, I worked under the supervision of Pedro Ferreira on forecasting cosmological parameters from weak lensing;
June – July 2010
Internship at the Laboratoire de Physique des Lasers, Université Paris Nord (Paris XIII), first actual “lab” experience, I worked with Laurent Vernac and Étienne Maréchal on frequency locking of a laser for cold atoms physics.

Outreach

I have been involved in various events, mainly hosted by the Observatoire de Lyon.

  • Fête de la Science” (national science festival)
  • European Heritage Days at the Observatoire de Lyon
  • Oufs d’astro” (astronomy festival hosted by the Vaulx-en-Velin planetarium)
