Students & Postdocs

Over the past 15 years, I have supervised 29 PhD students and postdocs, with 6 currently in my group, of 14 different nationalities. Of the 23 who have continued beyond CosmoStat, 16 continue to work in academia (12 with permanent academic positions) and 7 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.
