I’m an astrophysicist working as a European Space Agency research fellow based at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, USA. I work on direct imaging exoplanets using some of the largest telescopes in the world, as well as working on the comissioning of the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope. Prior to this position, I completed my PhD at the University of Geneva, Switzerland as well as a Masters between the University of Sheffield, UK and the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. I am #BiInSci and I also founded and curate the @LGBTQIAinAstro Twitter account.
