Laurent Jacob

2017 iREx Summer Intern and B.Sc. student, Université de Montréal

Laurent is an undergraduate student in mathematics and physics at Université de Montréal. He also previously completed a software engineering undergraduate degree at McGill University. He is doing an internship at iREx this summer with Nicolas Cowan and Holly Sheets.

The goal will be to develop tools to analyze more efficiently exoplanet atmospheric data from ground-based and space-based telescopes. These data allow to measure the reflexion of the atmospheres, the infrared opacity, the heat transport and to map the exoplanets.
