I work on the development of new instruments to improve the performances of observational astronomy. In the past, my work has involved spectro-polarimetry instrumentation for solar astronomy with Haosheng Lin, SWIR cameras characterization for ESA and optical design for interferometry with Antoine Labeyrie.
I currently work with Haosheng Lin on instrumentation for solar astronomy and superflaring stars, and also with Mike Bottom with who I test detectors for space astronomy.
Besides astronomy, I enjoy hiking and surfing which A BIT contributed to moving to Hawaii. I also believe we, as astronomers, can and should make a positive impact on climate issues and the current decline of biodiversity.
