Dr. Nathalie Nguyen-Quoc Ouellette (that's me!) is an observational astrophysicist currently based out of Montréal, Canada. I am the Coordinator at the Institute for Research on Exoplanets (iREx) at the Université de Montréal and the Canadian Scientific Communicator for the JWST working with the Canadian Space Agency. I am also an active researcher on the topics of galaxy formation and evolution.
Here, you will find information about me, my research, my outreach activities, how to best contact me, and a smattering of other random stuff I've deemed pertinent enough to include. You'll find many things underlined throughout my website. These are all hyperlinks that I encourage you to click (for your edutainment).
Check out my blog where I'll delve into some fun space trivia, give you a behind the scenes look at what it's like to be a professional astrophysicist, talk about what's got me really excited in science news, and answer some of your questions! I'll be sure to throw in a fair amount of memes, for good measure. Everything pre-2017 was taken from my Queen's Observatory blog from my time there as a Coordinator.
I take science very seriously, but I try not to take myself too seriously at the same time! Science has to be approached with a rigorous work ethic and sharp critical thinking, but it's also just so much fun to do and talk about. I hope my love for space will come through here.
Science is for everyone; let me tell you about it!
