Research description

Initially trained as a physicist and a chemist at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris, France), I developed my interest for quantitative approaches of biological systems during my MPhil and PhD in Biophysics at the University of Cambridge. I am now a Wellcome Trust Interdisciplinary Research Fellow in the group of Professor Benjamin Simons, where my work combines theoretical methods from statistical and soft matter physics with wet lab biology experiments to understand the role of cellular heterogeneity in cell fate decision, pattern formation and tissue function during development, homeostasis and tumorogenesis.
