I obtained my PhD from UPMC-Paris VI University, France, in 2010 and then trained in the field of mitochondrial diseases in the lab of Pierre Rustin at Robert Debré Hospital in Paris, with an emphasis on molecular genetics and mechanisms of diseases. I then moved to the UK in 2014, successively in the lab of Mark Pook at Brunel University London and Paola Giunti at the Institute of Neurology (UCL), where I pursued my studies on Friedreich ataxia including basic research in epigenetics and translational research in biomarkers and drug discovery. I joined the Wai lab in 2017, where I am developing functional genetic screening approaches in inherited mitochondrial disorders.
