Research interests:

Cosmochemistry, Astrobiology, Meteorites, Planetary Science, Isotope Geochemistry, Geology.

Career history:

I have a BSc in Geology since 2015, from the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (UQAC, Chicoutimi, QC, Canada), as well as an MSc degree in Earth and Planetary Sciences, with a specialization in Geochemistry, which I started at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (ENSL, Lyon, France) and finished at the Université Paris Diderot (Paris VII, Paris, France) in partnership with the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP, France).

Active research projects:

I am a PhD student in Earth Sciences currently working on the delivery of water on Earth by carbonaceous chondrites, under the supervision of Prof. Martin Lee and Dr. Lydia Hallis at the University of Glasgow.
