I am currently a student in the Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (University of Oxford), and am funded by a Clarendon Scholarship. I did my undergraduate studies in France, starting with two years of "Classes Preparatoires" at the Lycee Louis-le-Grand (Paris) where I mainly studied Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry.
I then studied for 3 years at the Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau), one of the French leading schools of science and engineering. During the two first years, I extended my knowledge in Biology, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, and Computer Science. I then decided, in my third year, to specialize in Biology and Biophysics.
I am interested in different areas of biology, including neurosciences, the microbiome and nutrition. Given my engineering background, topics which enable me to link biology with physics, chemistry or computer science also interest me particularly.
