My research activity is in the field of high-resolution infrared and millimetre-wave spectroscopy. In general, the molecules investigated are of astrophysical (HCCCN, NH3,…) or atmospheric (CF2CFH, CH2DF,…) interest. Often, besides the parent species, isotopically substituted molecules are studied. The main goal is their accurate spectroscopic characterization but the study of rare isotopologues is also very useful for the derivation isotopic ratios is different regions of the Space. In fact, such information can shed some light on the evolutionary stage and the physical and chemical properties of those regions.

The infrared spectra are recorded in our laboratory at the industrial chemistry department, while the rotational spectra are recorded at the chemistry department (Ciamician). As far as the far-infrared spectra, they are observed at the synchrotron facilities, either in Paris or in Canada.
