I am a planetary astrophysicist and observational astronomer. I am currently a CSH Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Space and Habitability at the University of Bern, in Switzerland. Before that, I completed my PhD in Astronomy in 2019, at the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh, in Scotland.

I work on the detection and characterisation of giant exoplanets (planets orbiting other stars than our Sun) and brown dwarfs (astronomical objects intermediate between stars and planets). The goal of my research is to constrain the properties and demographics of these populations in order to better understand the worlds lying outside our own Solar system.
