I have been a CNRS researcher since 2013 in Villefranche-sur-Mer, one of the three marine stations of the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 06) in France.
I graduated in 2008 from the Sorbonne Universités, UPMC, Université Paris 06, and Texas A&M University in Texas, USA. Shortly after graduation, I started four years of postdoctoral research at the C-MORE (Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education) at the University of Hawaii.
My main research interests are driven by the need to better understand the global carbon cycle, and, in particular, the biological carbon pump, from gene to the ecosystem level. In order to achieve that goal, I had early motivation to bring “standard methods” together with new instruments and analytical tools to study the biology and biogeochemistry of the ocean.
