Originally from Paris, I did my undergraduate degree at The University of Edinburgh in Biological Sciences with Honors in Genetics. There, I focussed on epigenetic research investigating the role of SUMOylation in causing centromere defects in fission yeast. Following my BSc, I pursued further research in epigenetics at the London Institute of Medical Sciences, studying the evolution of DNA repair mechanisms in E. coli. I have recently completed my MSc in Genes, Drugs and Stem Cell - Novel Therapies at Imperial College London. As part of my placement in industry at the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult, I evaluated a novel bioreactor, the Quantum Flex, and optimised its induced pluripotent stem cell expansion process. At Columbia, I look forward to pursuing further studies in stem cell biology.
