Currently a CNRS researcher at the Bordeaux Astrophysics Laboratory (LAB), I am interested in the understanding of the physics of (extrasolar) planets and brown dwarfs.

More specifically, my research topics include:


Je participe aussi régulièrement à des actions de diffusion scientifique à l'intention des plus et moins jeunes. N'hésitez pas à me contacter si vous avez une idée en tête.


As part of the Ariel science advisory team, I am very glad to announce the adoption of the mission by the European Space Agency for a launch in 2029. Do not hesitate to ask me if you have any questions.

Check out Exo_k, a Python library to handle atmospheric opacities (Leconte, 2021)

Our 3D model of exoplanet's transit spectra, Pytmosph3r (Caldas et al., 2019), is finally available in a user friendly version. Enjoy!
