I completed my PhD at the University of Otago (New Zealand) focusing on insulin signalling before and after gastric bypass surgery, in which I trained as a molecular biologist with some bioinformatics experience. Throughout my PhD I became interested in the relationship between bacteria and their host, and the role of RNA in regulating physiological and pathological processes. In the team of A. Lebreton, I studied the impact of Listeria monocytogenes infection on eukaryotic mRNA translation.
