What do you do when you are not in the lab?

I’m cooking a lot, reading, hanging out with friends, listening to music and watching movies.


Where are you from? How many languages do you speak?  

I’m from France and I have spent most of my life in Paris. I speak French and English and a little bit of German


List interesting facts about you:  

My enthusiasm for research in the area of drug formulation is probably closely related to my passion for cooking (I especially love baking cakes and cookies).
I’m a huge fan of scuba diving and I obtained the “Advanced Open Water” certification 2 years ago.
I have 6 brothers and sister, but I am the only one pursuing a career in science, although a certain number of my relatives are teachers.
I made my first trip to the US when I was 17 and it was to visit… Wiisconsin (no wonder I like so much the Midwest)!
