Students & Postdocs

Over the past 15 years, I have supervised 35 PhD students and postdocs, with 9 currently in my group, of 17 different nationalities. Of the 26 who have continued beyond CosmoStat, 17 continue to work in academia (14 with permanent academic positions) and 8 work in industry (all with permanent positions), some still involved in research with me through my extensive academia-industry partnerships. I aim for gender balance in my group and am always interested in new ideas on how to achieve this.

A list of current vacancies in the CosmoStat group is available here.
