Myriam Prasow-Émond
M.Sc. student in astrophysics

Myriam Prasow-Émond is in the process of obtaining a master's degree in physics with a specialization in astrophysics at the Université de Montréal, under the supervision of Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo. She is currently working on a project to search for exoplanets in extreme environments, such as those surrounding black holes, using the Keck Telescope in Hawai'i. During her bachelor's degree in physics, she also had the opportunity to work on galaxy clusters with the Chandra and Hubble telescopes. Passionate about popularization and pedagogy, she frequently shares her knowledge, through conferences, with the general public and the most curious people. In addition, she is very involved in her academic community and is also a tutor, teaching assistant and financial officer for her union. As of September 2022, Myriam is pursuing a PhD in Earth Sciences at Imperial College London. Her project will focus on combining machine learning and satellite data to help small island developing states combat climate change.
