I obtained my master’s degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Rennes 1, France with a focus on genetics, genomics and computational modeling. Joining the Enhpathy network is a wonderful opportunity to improve and develop new scientific skills. Besides the lab, I enjoy swimming, baking and cooking. I’m always up to try new cuisine from all around the world!

My research project

Using human neural crest cells and the TFAP2A locus as a medically relevant models, our work will evaluate whether genetic variants within enhancers might interact with teratogenic factors as part of the etiology of human congenital abnormalities. Thus, by considering enhancers as hubs of gene-environmental interactions, our results can illuminate a novel and broadly relevant etiological paradigm for human disease.
