Research Interests: My current research focuses on high-contrast imaging in the view of directly detecting and characterizing exoplanets. In this framework, the development of innovative image post-processing methods is essential in order to eliminate the quasi-static speckles in the final image, which remain the main limitation for high-contrast. More generally, I am interested in improving the performance of instruments for exoplanet science, taking profit of data analysis and of the detailed characterization of the instrumental limitations and calibration capabilities. My fields of interest regroup direct detection of exoplanets, image processing, high angular resolution and high-contrast techniques, wavefront sensing and control, simulation, modeling and optical design.

Activities: WFIRST
