I mostly work on imaging projects using optical interferometry. My main activites consist in improving image reconstruction algorithms, and then comparing the latest reconstructions (from CHARA, VLTI, NPOI data) with state-of-the-art astronomical modeling codes. This work is applicable to a very broad range of astronomical targets: AGN, giant convective stars, interacting binaries, magnetically spotted stars, young stellar disks, etc.
Can we detect planets in these stellar environments ?
Can we image their evolving convection cells ?
Algol and beta Lyrae movies.
Black holes and Active Galactic Nuclei can be imaged too !
