Marianne Lemoine-Goumard is the new member of the UnivEarthS Scientific Committee

The LabEx UnivEarthS has the honour to welcome Marianne Lemoine-Goumard, astrophysicist at the CENBG laboratory (CNRS / University of Bordeaux), as the new member of our scientific committee. She is replacing Guillaume Dubus.

Marianne Lemoine-Goumard is research director in the Astroparticles group of the Centre d’Etudes Nucléaires de Bordeaux Gradignan (CENBG, CNRS / University of Bordeaux). She is a specialist in high-energy astrophysics and is particularly interested in the most violent phenomena in the Universe, including supernovas, pulsars or their nebulae, and their role in the acceleration process of cosmic rays.

After studying at the École Centrale de Lille and Paris, she completed a thesis at the Leprince-Ringuet Laboratory at the Ecole Polytechnique. Her subject: the study of cosmic rays using data from the H.E.S.S. gamma ray telescope, located in Namibia. For her thesis, defended in 2006, Marianne Lemoine-Goumard was awarded the Thesis Prize of the Ecole Polytechnique, as well as the Daniel Guinier Prize of the French Physical Society. She then joined the CENBG the same year, where she continued her research on cosmic rays from the H.E.S.S. experiment, but also with data from the Fermi satellite.

For the quality of her work, Marianne Lemoine-Goumard was awarded a “young researchers” grant from the European Research Council (ERC) in 2010 and the CNRS bronze medal in 2011. She is now an expert for various international scientific organizations.
