Postdoctoral fellow at Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans (LMV) & Laboratoire de Génétique, Reproduction et Développement (GReD) - Université Clermont Auvergne
My short biography
I first studied Geology at Grenoble University (Joseph Fourier University, UJF) where I received my MSc degree with honors in 2014 with a specialization in Geochemistry. After completing a master internship at the University of Maryland (USA), I received in 2018 my PhD at the ENS of Lyon. My PhD research was mainly focused on the measurement and high-precision isotopic analysis of essential mineral elements in a biomedical context via liquid ion chromatography (LC) - inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (Q-ICPMS/MC-ICPMS) techniques. This research was carried out in collaboration with biologists and doctors from various laboratories including EPFL Lausanne, IGFL Lyon and the CHU of Lyon and aims at (1) providing new insights into human ageing and (2) developing new approaches for diagnosis and prognosis of neurodegenerative diseases such as the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
I then worked for a year as a postdoctoral fellow in Environmental Geochemistry at ETH Zurich where my research interests focused on human health, environmental sciences and analytical chemistry and were mainly based on the global cycle of selenium (Se).
Since January 2020, I am continuing my research career at Clermont-Ferrand in collaboration with the Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans (LMV) & Laboratoire de Génétique, Reproduction et Développement (GReD) where I work as a postdoctoral fellow in Geochemistry in order to better understand and evaluate the risk represented by long-term exposure to volcanic ashes on human health.
