My research interests focus on nano-toxicology and ecotoxicology.
I studied Biology and received my Master’s in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Toulon (France), and graduated with a Ph.D. in 2017 from the French National Institute for Agronomical Research. My Ph.D. research focused on titanium dioxide nanoparticles in food, including physicochemical characterization, fate in digestive fluids and toxicity to the human gut microbiota. I then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Oklahoma State University and Washington University in St Louis, USA. The aim of my research was to track the chemical transformations of silver and titanium dioxide nanoparticles occurring during their uptake by the intestinal cells (RTgutGC), as well as to identify their effects on the homeostasis of essential trace elements.
I am now working as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at EAWAG, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology in Switzerland. My current project aims at evaluating the toxicity of tire particles (micro and nano-plastics) using the fish intestinal cell model RTgutGC.
