Nabila Aghanim was awarded with an ERC Advanced Grant (2017-2022). Together with her team, she investigates and unveils the missing baryons in the Universe developing sophisticated statistical approaches, including machine learning, to combine and analyse data from cosmological surveys in the optical, millimeter and X-rays. She was heavily involved in the Planck mission from its early stages to data exploitation, leading one of Planck’s seven science working groups on clusters of galaxies and secondary anisotropies. She was awarded the CNRS bronze medal for young scientists in 2005, the CNRS silver medal in 2017, and several international prizes such as the Gruber or Marcel Grossman prizes as member of the Planck collaboration. She is now involved in the preparation of the ESA M2 space mission Euclid (Launch 2022).
