NASA Antarctica Meteorite

Research interests

Originally, when I was a kid, I was an amateur of astronomy and always curious about Science. After making water-rockets in highschool, I have studdied Physics and Chemistry. I made my first step in Science Research in Geology Surface and Meteoritical proccesses analyses durig my bachelor.

Titan North Pole Lakes

After a internship at JPL for my Master degree, I started to work on Titan using the Cassini VIMS instrument to study the North Pole lakes and evaporites. Then I made some analyses on the dunes fields and mega-yardangs which can be seen on the surface with the onboard RADAR. Finnaly, for my PhD, I switched to atmospheric modelization of Titan atmosphere using the ISS Camera.

PhD research

I'm currently working on Detached Haze Layer (DHL) on Titan Atmosphere. Using radiative transfert model and fractal aerosols aggregates optical properties, I try to retrieve the number, the size and the shape of these particules at different height.
