Welcome...

As a CNRS staff at IPAG, I am a member of the Star, Brown dwarf and Planet Formation group (FOST) of the Institute of Planetology and Astrophysics of Grenoble (IPAG). My science interests are related to the understanding of the physics, the architecture and the formation of exoplanetary systems. As an observer, I am mainly using Adaptive optics and high contrast imaging techniques (coronagraphy, spectral and differential imaging, IFU-spectroscopy), near-infrared low-resolution spectroscopy and radial velocity spectroscopy of giant planets and brown dwarfs. I am also interested in studying the connection between exoplanets and circumstellar disks as well as testing predictions of planetary formation scenarios in extreme planetary systems as close binaries.
