Expertise

My research activities have been fully dedicated to the field of exoplanet searches and characterization over the last 25 years.

I have been leading a team of astronomers to search for cold planets via microlensing effects using a network of ground based telescopes (including Tasmania). We discovered the first cold telluric planet in 2006, showed that having a planet is the rule for the stars of our galaxy in 2012, and recently discovered the first planet orbiting a dead star, a white dwarf (2021).

I am also co-PI of the ESA Ariel M4 space mission that will probe the atmosphere of 1000 exoplanets from 2029.

My work has been supported in by CNRS, CNES, ANR (France), ARC and University of Tasmania (Australia).

Awards

  • Prix Louis Armand of the French Academie des Sciences for my contribution to the Hubble Constant measurement (1996)

Current projects

COLD-WORLDS aims to use gravitational microlensing explores a unique niche: discovering cold planets down to Earth mass orbiting around any kind of star, at any distance towards the galactic center, rogue planets & exomoons orbiting planets. These are in very different environments from most known exoplanets, allowing key tests of planet formation theory. We will operate infrared wide field imagers and adaptive optics (KECK, ESO) to provide accurate mass measurements of cold planets of any mass and perform demographics of the Disk and Bulge cold planet populations. We are also laying the foundations for the space-based microlensing programs on board Euclid and WFIRST.

Projects

The Occurrence of Cold Planets in the Galaxy (2020 - 2022)$465,000
Description
This project benefits the national interest through its potential to contribute to answering some of the biggest questions possible: the formation of Earth-like planets, and the origin and prevalence of life itself. These questions lie at the heart of scientific curiosity and are of broad interest to the public. The results of astronomical research have dramatic impact on the public view of the nature of life and our place in the Universe. Fundamental basic research is essential to educate workers for a technically-based, information-driven economy, and to build the knowledge base of scientists across applied and commercial sectors. Exoplanet research is an area of strengthfor Australian astronomy; this project has tremendous synergy with recent major investments by the government in astronomy infrastructure. The discovery of exoplanets in diverse environments across the Milky Way is a unique opportunity to engage public interest in science, and will encourage students to study Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics subjects by raising the profile of Australian fundamental scientific research.

Hidden Earths and Distant Suns: A New Optical Astronomy Observatory in Tasmania (2011)$285,000
Description
Modern astrophysics is reliant on technology to monitor time-variable phenomena on scales from minutes to years for millions of stars. We are building a state of the art 1.3m optical telescope in central Tasmania, to be fully remotely-operable and furnished with a high-resolution wide-field camera and a powerful spectrograph. This will be a powerful and versatile tool for astrophysics. It will significantly advance studies of the frequency of Earth-like planets around other stars, and a wide range of planetary and stellar astrophysics questions including the variability of stars like the Sun. The new telescope will support dozens of astronomers who will use it for the equivalent of over 100 nights per year.
