Curriculum

During my PhD, I used an innovative approach based on chemical analysis and in vitro bioassays to improve the detection of biologically active chemicals in aquatic environments. I was awarded a personal grant to collaborate with the Unit of Ecotoxicology of INERIS to learn the bioassay method. I then worked as a postdoctoral researcher for a European FP7 project at HydroSciences Montpellier  to study the influence of hydrology on the fate and dynamic of pollutants in temporary Mediterranean rivers. In 2012, I was awarded an Intra-European Marie Curie Fellowship to work with Prof. E.M. Hill at the University of Sussex (UK) where I learnt the latest cutting edge techniques and approaches of untargeted metabolite profiling (metabolomics) using high resolution mass spectrometry. I also initiated a collaboration with Prof C. Tyler, a renown fish physiologist, and his team at the University of Exeter (UK) to understand the effect of exposure to wastewater effluents on freshwater fish. In 2014, I was appointed as a Research Fellow at the School of Life Sciences (University of Sussex) and I further developed my interest in environmental exposures and investigated the exposure of bees to pesticide mixtures in collaboration with Profs E.M. Hill and D. Goulson (University of Sussex).

Research

In 2016, I have been awarded a Research Chair grant to work at the School of Public Health (Rennes, France). I will use my expertise in discovery-based untargeted analytical approach to study the association between chemical mixtures and human health effects.
