In 2007 I left Italy to do my M2 in Paris. I then conducted my PhD at the Pasteur Institute in A. Israël’s lab, on the role of Notch signaling in hepatic progenitors. In 2013 I joined Laure’s team as an engineer, to work in particular on Notch involvement in quiescence-activation homeostasis of neural stem cells in the adult zebrafish (with Alessandro Alunni, Emmanuel Than-Trong and Nicolas Dray).
In 2018 I had a permanent position in Laure’s lab, as Research Engineer. I am in charge of most of the molecular biology techniques and databases used in the lab. I develop new techniques for the lab, in particular generating new transgenic lines (CRISPR/Cas9 technology for knock-ins).
