I joined the Macklis lab in the summer of 2019. I am currently interested in investigating the molecular mechanisms underlying the development of cerebral cortex associative neurons and its circuitry. In particular, I aim to study (1) the formation of intra- and inter-hemispheric circuits of callosal projection neurons (CPNs) during the development ; (2) implication of growth cone machinery in this process ; (3) and the role of these circuitries in social and cognitive behaviors.

I was a Pharm.D student at Paris Descartes University (France) before beginning the MCO Ph.D. program at Harvard in 2018. In parallel with pharmaceutical studies, I got a master degree in neurosciences (M.Sc.) in 2016 at the same University.
