Laurent was an undergraduate student in mathematics and physics at Université de Montréal in 2016-2017. He previously completed a software engineering undergraduate degree at McGill University. He did an internship at iREx during the summer of 2017, with Nicolas Cowan and Holly Sheets.
The goal was 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.
