Fields: Environmental Impacts of Aviation, Air Quality

Lab Role: Research Assistant


I come from Strasbourg, France, and completed my Bachelor of Science at École Centrale Paris. My project there focused on the design of an innovative aircraft, the Bee-Plane. I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT and my research focuses on assessing the temporal and spatial impacts of aviation emissions on air quality in different regions of the world. It aims at providing regulators and policy makers with an efficient tool to make science-based regulation decisions. I use global-scale chemical transport models as well as rapid assessment tools.
