Students & Postdocs

Over the past 15 years, I have supervised 39 PhD students and postdocs, with 6 currently in my group, of 17 different nationalities. Of the 35 who have continued beyond CosmoStat, 20 continue to work in academia (16 with permanent academic positions) and 15 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.
