An optical engineer by training, Mathieu Quatrevalet got involved in remote sensing for atmospheric sciences at the European Space Agency, where he contributed to feasibility studies for a number of payloads including a differential absorption lidar for carbon dioxide. After operating and upgrading a ground-based lidar for ozone and polar stratospheric clouds during a winterover at the French Antarctic station Dumont d’Urville, he went on to work on the design and exploitation of airborne and spaceborne differential absorption lidars for greenhouse gas measurements at the Institute for Atmospheric Physics of DLR.
