Brief bio: Fascinated by plants since childhood, I lately decided to join the university to study plant sciences in 2009. Following the obtention of my M.Sc. in plant sciences, I began to work as a study engineer in 2014 on the roles of NOOT-BOP-COCH-LIKE (NBCL) genes in Legume-rhizobia symbiosis in the group of Pascal Ratet at the Plant Sciences Institute of Paris-Saclay. During my contract I decided to valorize my research works by doing a Ph.D. and obtained this later in 2017. Nowaday, I have been recruited as Post doc in the Laboratory of Molecular Biology of Wageningen University & Research and I continue to investigate the functioning of NBCL genes in Parasponia-rhizobia symbiosis context.
