My research

I study the inter -and circumstellar medium and star formation in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies. My primary focus is on large carbonaceous molecules (such as Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, PAHs, and fullerenes), carbon nano-particles, and dust. Most of my research involves infrared spectroscopy and imaging.

Together with Emilie Habart and Olivier Berné, I am leading the JWST Early Release Science Program "PDRs4All: Radiative feedback from massive stars". For more information on this program, see the program's website and the STScI website on this program.
