I am an observational astronomer, expert on star formation.

My research aims at better understanding the mechanisms leading to the formation of stars using state-of-the-art telescopes (e.g. ALMA, Herschel)

I arrived at Cardiff University in April 2013 as a Lecturer.

Prior to that, from January 2010 to March 2013, I was a COFUND Marie Curie Fellow at CEA Saclay, France.

From December 2005 to December 2009, I was a PDRA at the University of Manchester, starting immediately after getting my PhD degree from the Universite Marie Curie in Paris.

My research is focusing on the earliest stages of galactic star formation, from low-mass stars to massive stars.

I try in particular to characterise the role of dense gas dynamics on the determination of star-forming-core masses. To do this, I use state-of-the-art observations spanning a range of wavelengths, from infrared to millimetre.
