avec Franck Selsis (04/07/2023)

As a specialist in planetary atmospheres, Franck Selsis was recruited in 2004 by the CNRS in the team of the Centre de recherches astrophysiques de Lyon (CRAL) of the ENS Lyon, after a 3-year postdoc in Spain. In 2007, he obtained a grant from the first ERC Starting Grant call to develop a program to study the atmospheres of exoplanets at the Laboratoire d'astrophysique de Bordeaux (LAB). He is now research director and head of the ECLIPSE (Exoplanets - CLImates - Planetary Systems Evolution) team at LAB (CNRS / University of Bordeaux). He participated in 2007 to the first detection of a molecule (H2O) in the atmosphere of an exoplanet with the Hubble Space Telescope as well as to the first detection in 2014 of an Earth-like and Earth-temperature exoplanet (Kepler 186 f, found with the Kepler Space Telescope). He is also part of the consortium that revealed in August 2016 the presence of a potentially habitable exoplanet around Proxima, the closest star to the Sun.
