About me

I am a scientist at IBM Watson Health and I hold a PhD in neurobiology at Harvard University. My PhD research has been very hands on, and I’ve collected vast amounts of data of different kinds – behavioral, neural and imaging. The most fun was making sense of it all. I started out studying arousal mechanisms in the model system of the larval zebrafish. Then I went on to research how brain cells translate sensory information into behavior.

Before Harvard, I earned a B.A. in Molecular and Cellular Biology at Berkeley. And before that, I made a stunt in film (behind the camera). Some day I will manage to integrate my love of visual arts with research in understanding brain and behavior.  

I grew up Paris, France (I'm a lucky dual citizen.) After high school I wanted to discover my “roots” in a place where I could also be free to explore a wide range of disciplines in college.
