I grew up in France and in Austria and studied theoretical physics at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland) and Moscow State University (MSU, Russia). After computational work on crystal growth in gels, I turned to experiments in the field of physical chemistry (colloidal crystal growth, thin films, heterogeneous nucleation) and biomineralization, in the US (Northwestern University, Chicago) and in France (CEA Saclay, LIONS). After my PhD, I worked for two years as an engineer in a start-up company, Accelerators & Cryogenic Systems. I have been passionately involved in the study of embryonic development since I started my postdoc at Laboratoire Matière & Systèmes Complexes (MSC). I was hired in 2016 as a CNRS staff scientist, in the Biofluidics Team of MSC at Univeristy Paris Diderot.
