Passionate about Sciences since high school, I studied Bioengineering at UCLouvain and I ended with a master in “Environmental Sciences and Technologies” in 2017. Afterwards, I found my way in the environmental field with an ongoing PhD research project working on Arctic permafrost. I’ve joined the European WeThaw project that studies the impact of global warming on the permafrost degradation and the release of a newly unlocked mineral pool. More specifically, I study the mineral element mobility through permafrost soil and the mineral soil-plant transfer, upon permafrost degradation.
I enjoy facing new challenges and learning more about the environment surrounding us. UCL to Mars is an exciting project, in which every member can rely on his specific background to think and create an innovative experiment, with an actual scientific interest for the Martian exploration.
UCL to Mars also makes the communication around the project and spatial general knowledge a priority. This last point join my desire to reduce the gap between the scientific community and the public. My starting experience in research makes me realize how important the knowledge sharing is!
Fast assessment of mineral content on Martian-like soil with portable XRF device
This experiment is about testing an innovative way to analyze Martian soil composition. At the MDRS, our goal is to provide a rapid and reliable assessment of Martian-like soil mineral content, which will contribute (i) to evaluate the suitability of these soils for food production and (ii) to study the potential ancient presence of liquid […]
