Curriculum Vitae:

Elodie Choquet

My main science interests reside in the study of the composition and formation mechanisms of planetary systems. My research focuses on the observation of young systems with high contrast imaging, for which I developed an expertise in post-processing techniques. I also have a strong interest in developing cutting-edge instrumental systems for high contrast and/or high angular resolution observations. I did all of my education in France, where I studied Optical Science at the Ecole Superieure d'Optique (Palaiseau) and Université Jean Monnet (Saint Etienne). During my PhD at Paris Observatory (2009-2012), I developped the control algorithms of the fringe tracker of GRAVITY, new near-infrared interferometric instrument at the VLT (ESO). During my postdoc at STScI (2013-2015), I re-analyzed the HST-NICMOS coronagraphic archive with modern post-processing algorithms as part of the ALICE project. I also took part to the definition and optical design of the HICAT experiment to study wavefront control strategies for future high-contrast imaging space missions, and of the JOST testbed, a refractive replica of JWST to study wavefront sensing and control. Since 2016 I am Hubble Fellow at JPL, where I study the properties of debris disks with imaging instrument both from HST and ground-based telescopes.
