Maxime Marmier

PhD student in Astrophysics


    Maxime Marmier is currently finishing his PhD in astrophysics at the Department of Astronomy of the University of Geneva. Under supervision of Prof. Udry, he has been working on the statistical properties of extrasolar planets discovered with the spectrographs HARPS and CORALIE. The main topic of his thesis is a combined analysis of the data gathered with these two instruments in order to determine the frequency of planetary systems orbiting main sequence stars in the solar neighborhood (50 parsecs) of the southern sky.
