Raphaël completed his undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Physics at Université de Montréal in the spring of 2018.
In September of 2018, he started his master in astrophysics with Paul Charbonneau and Andrew Cumming from Université de Montréal and McGill University respectively. The expertise of both his master’s directors allow him to do research on a subject explored by only a few scientists around the globe. This subject is the dynamos in hot Jupiters. With this project, he wishes to explain some phenomena such as why those exoplanets close to their star have a significantly larger radii than what today’s evolutionary theory predicts.
