After studying medicine at the University of Bordeaux followed by several years of clinical medical practice, I focussed on public health. I spent ten years in Africa (Sénégal and the Central African Republic), working first for an NGO (Médecins du monde, AICF) and then for the Ministry of Cooperation. Upon my return to France, I completed public health inspector training at the ENSP [National School of Public Health] (1996-1997) before being posted in the Nord Pas de Calais Region. In 2002, I was recruited by the ENSP (which later became the EHESP [French School of Public Health]) as a research professor in health policies and assessment.

I graduated in Public Health (PhD,  Diploma in Health and Development, Epidemiology) and social sciences (Master's in Ethnology , Diploma of Advanced Studies in Anthropology).
