I'm Quentin Kral,

an Astrophysicist in Planetary Sciences

at the Observatory of Paris, FRANCE

Hello, I'm a researcher in Astronomy in Paris! My work mainly focuses on trying to understand the many planetary systems that are observed in the solar neighbourhood. On this website, I tell you a lot about the different projects I worked on or that are on-going. There is also a Question section to ask me whatever you find unclear about planets, comets, or even our universe as a whole! You can also contact me personally for any other enquiry...

Would you like to organize a conference? CarbonFreeConf is a new platform that allows you to create your conference in no time. Invite your attendees (and/or let them subscribe on the conference website that is created for you automatically) and the rest is handled.

You can decide that the conference is free for your participants or make them pay a fee to access it. CarbonFreeConf then collects the money for you and transfer it to your bank account when the conference is over, which could be a way to make profits at the same time for your institute to hire more postdocs or PhD students.

Lastly, they offset all the carbon emissions produced by the virtual conference using trusted companies. Go check it out for more detail.
