ABOUT ME

I am a physicist, Directrice de Recherche in the Astrophysics Department at The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) Paris-Saclay, France.

My main expertise is in cosmology, astrophysics and space science, bridging between theory and observations. I have worked for space missions like ESA Planck and ESA Euclid satellites, for which I have coordinated different projects. I am currently in charge of the Euclid Inter Science Taskforce Likelihood, whose task is to use ESA Euclid space mission data to test different theoretical scenarios describing the Universe.
