Thomas Vandal


I am a PhD student in astrophysics at the University of Montreal and I am part of the Exoplanet Research Institute. I study planets outside the solar system. My research activities cover different subjects such as the detection of planets, the calculation of their mass and the study of their atmosphere. In these different projects, I have the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art instruments such as the James Webb Space Telescope and the high-resolution spectrographs SPIRou and NIRPS at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope and La Silla Observatory in Chile. I really enjoy sharing the results of my work and discussing the topics surrounding it. So I am very happy to participate in InitiaSciences, as it is a new way to spread the word about research and astronomy.
