PhD Candidate - Astrophysics

Université de Montréal


I am a PhD candidate in astrophysics at the University of Montréal, currently working on the origin of life problem from a statistical physics perspective.

My research interests also include complex systems, major evolutionary transitions and philosophy. I am a member of the Centre for Research in Astrophysics of Quebec, the Origin of Life Early-career Network.

I also maintain a digest of newly published papers on the origin of life every week or so.

In my free time, I run, bike, do yoga, and love to travel.
