Genevieve Gariepy was born in Chicoutimi (Canada) in 1987. She did her Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics at École Polytechnique de Montréal from 2007 to 2011, including a year abroad in Grenoble (France) at PHELMA. She then did her Master’s degree at the University of Ottawa under the supervision of Prof. Paul Corkum. She worked on generation of high-order harmonics containing orbital angular momentum (OAM), showing that OAM is conserved during the process of high-harmonic generation. She is now doing her PhD at Heriot-Watt University and is currently studying the use of single photon avalanche detectors (SPAD) arrays to perform Light-in-Flight measurements.
