My master’s degree in this interdisciplinarity field that is bioinformatics gives me the know-how to analyze various data like genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes, macromolecular structures or interaction networks. I completed a Ph.D. in bioinformatics during which I studied the impact of ocean currents and physicochemical parameters on the organization of the genomic content of green algae and planktonic communities on a global scale through comparative analysis of Tara Oceans metagenomic/transcriptomic data. This transdisciplinary project has required collaboration with international laboratories and the use of High-Performance Computing Cluster for the analysis of these large scale biological data. Then, I joined the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography in Marseille as part of a two-year postdoctoral fellowship. My research project consisted in studying bacterial bioluminescence in the global ocean. To this end, I worked on the biogeographic and evolutionary analysis of bacterial luciferase by integrating metagenomic data from different large-scale marine environment sequencing projects.

As a research engineers in bioinformatics within CENTURI multi-engineering platform, I am in charge of providing advice and support to researchers concerning data analysis and data mining. Moreover, I organize and conduct courses on bioinformatics and data analysis and assist in technology transfer between the teams of the CENTURI project.
