I am a researcher at the Astrophysics department of the Liège University (AGO) currently working on the preparation of the PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations of stars (PLATO) space mission. I am also PI of the B-fields in OB stars survey (BOB) whose aim is to investigate the magnetic properties of massive stars.

I was previously involved in the development of softwares for the Gaia satellite. My previous position was at KU Leuven to primarily study the chemical composition of pulsating β Cephei stars. I also worked at Palermo observatory on the photospheric abundances of active binaries, at IUCAA (India) and at Imperial College (UK), where I was involved in the European Large Area ISO Survey (ELAIS). I did my Ph.D. Thesis on Wolf-Rayet stars at the Université de Montréal (Canada) and my M.Sc. at the Observatoire de Strasbourg (France). I undergraduated at the Université de Picardie (France).
