By Martin Turbet.
I am a CNRS research scientist working in Paris, France, at LMD/IPSL. I am also a research affiliate at LAB in Bordeaux, France.
My research work lies at the interface between astrophysics, climate sciences and geophysics. I develop and use a hierarchy of sophisticated numerical atmospheric models to study the climates of terrestrial planets located both inside the Solar System (Mars, Earth and Venus) and outside (exoplanets). The goal of this work is to explore new worlds, potentially similar to our own, and from that exploration, to get a unique perspective on our Earth.
While astrophysics fascinates me, I am concerned about the human-driven evolution of Earth's climate. My ambition is to help detect and characterize the atmosphere, clouds and surface of exoplanets of terrestrial-size, temperate exoplanets. This scientific endeavour would make it possible to study exoplanets potentially similar to the Earth (at least in size, mass and insolation) but which have evolved in a very different environment from our Earth.

Rencontres Exobiologiques pour Doctorants is an annuel meeting adress to:
• Any student preparing his PhD thesis in Astronomy, Geology, Chemistry, Biology or History/Philosophy of sciences in France or any other country.
• Any students or young scientist wishing to acquire an interdisciplinary training in astrobiology to complete their initial training and to be able to address issues about the origins of life on Earth, its evolution and its distribution in the Universe.
