Miscellaneous Information

I finished my Physics studies at Universit√© Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium) in 2007 and joined the "Solar Irradiance" group at the Royal Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (BIRA-IASB) on the same year. I joined then the "Planetary Aeronomy" division in 2009. From 2010, in parallel and related to my work, I did my PhD theses in Physics at the Universit√© Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium), which I obtained in 2015.

My research field is about remote sensing analysis of the Martian atmosphere in the UV.
In 2008, I started working on dust, ice clouds and ozone retrieval with SPICAM-UV on board Mars-Express (PhD topic).
I became a co-I member of NOMAD instrument on board of the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (EMTGO). Since 2009, I was involved in the pre-launch sensitivity and calibration tests of the UV-visible channel (UVIS) then became in charge of the UVIS data calibration.
From the beginning of the Science phase of EMTGO in 2018, I pursued my work about ice clouds, dust and ozone retrieval analysing the NOMAD-UVIS measurements.
