Maude is completing her second year in Honours Physics at McGill University. Her passion for astrophysics started during her first year in CÉGEP. She has been working at Mont-Mégantic National Park for the past two summers, first as a guide in astronomy, then as a project leader where she had the opportunity to work on a project targeting the reduction of light pollution within the International Dark-Sky Reserve.
Her first astrophysics project was on developing a way to compare Sagittarius A* flaring characteristics obtained through observations to those obtained through simulations. This summer, she enthusiastically joins the iREx team as a Trottier Intern. She will be working with David Lafrenière.
