After a semester internship in King’s College London working on prion diseases, she engaged in interdisciplinary studies through the master Interdisciplinary Approaches of Life Sciences (AIV) at the CRI. She then completed a Ph.D. in neurobiology in Pierre & Marie Curie University & Ecole Normale Supérieure in 2010, working on the molecular dynamics of synapses, in relation with memorization processes. She continued with a post-doctorate at the interface between physics and biology, on the skin cellular mechanics, in Paris Diderot University in 2011. In parallel of her research activities, she contributed to developing interactive and interdisciplinary teaching at the CRI, and redesigning part of the Master 2 AIV curriculum within its teaching team.
