Alexandrine L’Heureux

M.Sc. Student, Université de Montréal

Alexandrine completed her bachelor’s degree in physics at Université de Montréal in the winter semester of 2022. With summer internships during her undergraduate’s studies, she discovered her interest in astrophysics research. In the summer of 2021, she worked under the supervision of Professor René Doyon to measure the planets’ masses of the Trappist-1 system using infrared high precision velocimetry data from SPIRou. This project, which she continues for her master’s degree, entails the creation of a model considering both the planets and the stellar activity signals.

Alexandrine is also committed to science communication. Since September 2020, she volunteers for the 1000 Sciences project of Cap campus by presenting interactive conferences about her research projects and participating to networking events aimed at secondary and cégep students. The goal of these activities is to encourage them to pursue a higher education and to demystify natural and applied sciences.
