After a Master degree in Developmental Biology and Neurodevelopment at the Faculty of Sciences at Marseille-Luminy in France, I joined the team for my Ph.D, in order to deepen my knowledge and to diversify myself.

Since October 2014, in collaboration with the laboratory of Dr.Martin Lévesque, I study the influence of pain on dopamine circuits. Specifically, I try to describe alterations in reward pathway induced by chronic pain.
