After a bachelor in biology at Université de Paris, I graduated from a MSc of Public Health at Université de Montréal. I completed my training with a "Master 2" in genetic epidemiology in Université Paris-Saclay. I am currently a PhD student at Université de Paris in the laboratory of Human Genetics of Infectious Diseases (J.L. Casanova & L. Abel).


The aim of my PhD is to study the genetic determinants of the resistance to infection to Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the etiologic agent causing tuberculosis among HIV-positive individuals. To do that, we are using whole genome sequencing data from HIV-infected individuals living in South Africa, a highly endemic region for tuberculosis. This project is part of the international consortium "Human Genetics of Tuberculosis Resistance among HIV-infected persons" funded by the NIH and will help decipher the immunological mechanisms involved in tuberculosis infection and resistance.


I am interested in the epidemiology of infectious diseases, HIV and co-infections, infectious diseases surveillance, field epidemiology investigations.
