Research summary

I am interested in understanding the role of mito-nuclear interaction in evolution using Drosophila as a model. Additionally, I am interested in uncovering the role of mitochondria in neurodevelopmental disorders.


Doctorate, Doctorate in neurogenetic |


I am a postdoc in the Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment in Prof. Kevin Fowler's lab. I also work in collaboration with Dr Florencia Camus and Prof Max Reuter.

I received my BSc in Biology and Chemistry and my MSc in Neuroscience and Cell Signalling from The University Paris Sud-Saclay.

I then completed my PhD at The University of Edinburgh, in Dr Kirsty Millar's lab, in collaboration with Prof David Price. There, I studied a new mice model of mental illness, mimicking the translocation (1;11), which has been found to segregate with various mental disorders.
