Fields: Environmental Impacts of Aviation, Contrails, Supersonic Aviation

Lab Role: Research Assistant


I come from Paris, France and completed my Bachelor of Science at École Centrale Paris. My interest in aeronautics really kicked off back there thanks to my strong ties with EM2C Laboratory. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT and am a Research Assistant at LAE. As a Masters student, my research project focuses on supersonic aircraft emissions in the atmosphere and their impact on the environment. My thesis aims at providing a better understanding of plume modelling and I use advanced global-scale chemical models to assess the effect of the pollutants in the atmosphere.
