Kim Morel

Treasurer, Board member

I am currently doing my master's degree in astrophysics at the Université de Montréal. Being affiliated with the Institute for Research on Exoplanets (iREx), I am focusing my research on the atmosphere of exoplanets. To do so, I analyze data collected by the James Webb Space Telescope, recently launched into space as a successor to Hubble. My passion for the Universe has been with me as long as I can remember, but my lack of knowledge in the field of astrophysical research led me to follow an atypical academic path. This is one of the reasons why InitiaSciences is particularly close to me, namely the desire to transmit to young people the pleasure and the importance of doing scientific research.
