Pierrot-Baptiste completed a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Physics at the Université de Montréal in the fall of 2020. He is now beginning a Master’s degree in astrophysics at the same university under the supervision of David Lafrenière.
During his undergraduate studies, he had the opportunity to apply his knowledge to data processing during two internships. First, he participated in the LaserAg project, a new soil analysis technology of the LogiAg company based on the study of laser-generated plasmas by spectroscopy. He then took part in a project aimed at developing DNA-based biosensors for antibody detection, notably associated with COVID-19, within the Department of Chemistry at the Université de Montréal. During this last internship, he was awarded the Undergraduate Student Research Awards of NSERC as well as the PROMOTE scholarship.
During his graduate studies, he will work on the characterization of the atmospheres of Jupiter-type exoplanets using high-resolution near-infrared spectroscopy.
