Head of School for Physics, University of Sydney

I am an astroparticle physicist who worked both in cosmology/astrophysics and particle physics.

I obtained my PhD in 2001 at Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris on the impact of dark matter microphysics on the formation of large-scale-structures in the universe.

After a fellowship in Oxford and another at CERN, I was awarded a research position at CNRS in Annecy, where I stayed for a few years before moving to Durham University in 2011.

In 2018 I joined the University of Sydney as only the second woman to be Head of School for Physics in the school's history.
