FORMATION & CARREER
After my masters in Philosophy of Sciences (Univ. Paris 4) and my masters in biology (CRI), I knew I wanted to work in the field of synthetic biology. I co-founded the synbio startup Unibiome (derived from our iGEM project) for the development of recombinant probiotics that produce vitamins in fermented foods. I then went to Institut MICALIS (INRAE) in Philippe Langella's team for three years, where I constructed many recombinant lactic acid bacteria with valuable health properties against IBDs.
I came back to the CRI in June 2021, in Jake Wintermute's team, to work on a research project using synthetic biology as a tool for early-stage drug discovery against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other human pathogens.
I'm a cosplayer! I make my own costumes of characters from my favorite franchises (often SF/fantasy), and dress up either for charity or just for fun. And I practice lightsaber combat as a sport!
