My research is focused on the development of an attosecond beamline for UV-pump, XUV-probe experiments in conjugated molecular systems.

Academic Career

I graduated from Université de Sherbrooke (Canada) in 2013 with a B.Sc. in chemistry. In January 2014 I started a M.Sc. in Energy Science and Materials at INRS-ÉMT (Canada) under the supervision of Prof. François Légaré. My work was mainly focused on molecular imaging and control. After a fast track to the Ph.D. in May 2015, I was awarded the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship (Vanier CGS) in May 2016. In March 2016, I joined the group of Prof. Francesca Calegari as a visiting Ph.D. student at the Politecnico di Milano (Italy). Since April 2018, I am pursuing this project at The Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY, Germany), always under the supervision of professors Légaré and Calegari.
