I’m a cometary scientist. My research focuses on the activity of gases and dust surrounding comets (jets, outbursts) and cometary taxonomy. During my PhD at the Paris Observatory, I used the Spitzer Space Telescope that observed comet 9P/Tempel 1 during the Deep Impact event. During my post‐doctoral position at NASA‐GSFC, I used ground-based telescopes in millimeter, sub-millimeter and radio wavelength to study cometary composition. During my post‐doctoral work, I was involved with the Rosetta mission that observed comet 67P/ Churyumov–Gerasimenko. I continued my work with OSIRIS at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research and with MIRO at NASA-JPL/Caltech. At UMD, I’m focusing on NEOWISE data, ground-based observations, and migrating the Rosetta and New Horizons PDS3 datasets to PDS4 for the Small Bodies Node.
