Scientific Interests

My research interests are in the field of observational cosmology, in structures formation and evolution, in particular reionization and star formation at high redshift.

My thesis was focused on the study of dust and gas in high redshift, optically bright, radio-quiet, quasars, using mainly ground based instruments in the (sub)mm and radio domains. I spent two years as a postdoctoral research fellow jointly between the Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie and the Argelander-Institut für Astronomie der Universität Bonn, directing the development of the BOlometers data Analysis software, and participating in the APEX-SZ and the Laboca projects on the Atacama Pathfinder EXperiment telescope. I was a Postdoctoral fellow at the Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale. I worked under the supervison of Guilaine Lagache on the clustering of infrared galaxies and the link between environmental effect and star formation at high redshift.

Since September 2009, I am an Assistant Astronomer at the Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale, leading the developpement of SANEPIC to be applied on Herschel data. I am part of the Herschel Multi-tiered Extragalactic Survey, the Herschel ATLAS, as well as the GOODS-H surveys.
