  • Feb 2018:   CNES Post-doctoral Fellow, at IRAP.
  • 2015-2018: FONDECYT Post-doctoral Fellow, at Pontifical Universidad Catolica de Chile, Santiago.
  • 2014-2015: Post-doctoral researcher and outreach coordinator, McGill University, Canada.


  • 2014: PhD in Physics, McGill University (with Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship).

  • 2007: Bachelor in Physics and Astronomy, University of Victoria, Canada.

My work focuses on the observations of neutron stars, at various wavelengths, to study physics that is otherwise inaccessible to experimentation:

  • X-ray observations of thermally emitting neutron star with Chandra, XMM-Newton, NICER.
  • Optical observations of neutron stars with the VLT and HST.

The study of neutron stars permits understanding the behaviour of matter at extreme densities (by measuring their radii), and understanding the physics in the crust of neutron stars (superfluidity, etc.)
