I did my bachelor studies in the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. After a long hesitation between evolution, ecology and developmental and cell biology, a long internship working on C. elegans early development (in Pr. Seydoux lab, John Hopkins University) definitly pushed me toward cell and developmental biology side. My interest for quantitative approaches brought me to an interdisciplinary master (AIV, Paris) where I start being interested by morphogenesis. I then joinded the laboratory of Thomas Lecuit (IBDM, Marseille, France) to start my PhD working on epithelial morphogenesis in early Drosophila embryo and the role of the modulation of cell-cell adhesion. I then moved to Switzerland in the group of Eduardo Moreno for my postdoc (IZB, University of Bern) working on cell competition. I eventually moved back to Paris in December 2016 to start my research group in the Institut Pasteur. .
