Présentation

I am a theoretical physicist by training and did my PhD work in Theoretical Neurophysics studying visual information processing and the formation of neural circuits during mammalian brain development and evolution. For my postdoc, I transitioned to experimental work in developmental biology, focusing on the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans). In my current work, I combine bioengineering, microfluidics, live imaging and computational modeling to study cell-fate decisions, cell-lineage variability and genetic circuits that encode developmental time and timing.
