Media coverage/Outreach

Being  a professional scientist  is an honor and privilege, particularly in astronomy, a field that has always fascinated mankind. Astronomical discoveries often make it to the main press and I cherish those moments to bring scientific awareness and fascination to everyone. I don’t think people should come to science rather that  science should come to them and try to promote scientific interest for everyone.

Here is a selection of  my recent outreach actions:

  • My paper on the formation conditions of the black holes from the first LIGO detection was covered in Scientific American :

as well as its French equivalent Pour la Science:

  • After the first detection, I was also interviewed by Scilabus, a French youtube channel for scientific outreach, led by a young female scientist.

  • I participate in the monthly outreach events at Caltech  as a lecture or telescope volunteer as well as the “Astronomy on Tap” sessions that are organized in a local bar.


  • In June 2016, I was a panelist for a discussion on Women in Science at Pasadena Litfest, a local literary festival focused on community issues (picture on top).
