Biographic notes
My research revolves around the detection of extrasolar planets using radial-velocity technique, the most efficient planetary detection method. I specialized in near-IR radial velocities and precision issues, and I work mostly on the development of pipelines for state-of-the-art and forthcoming spectrographs; yet my research interests span a wide range of sub-topics (from statistical methods to modelling).
