Introduction

Growing up in Southern France by the Mediterranean, I always loved swimming, snorkeling and observing fish interact. My curiosity and passion for science has led me to first specialize in microbiology in high school before starting my undergraduate studies at SKEMA where I focused on Marine Sciences. I transferred and completed my degree at The University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia, where I had the opportunity to study reef environments and really ensure Marine Biology was my vocation. Since, I completed an Honours degree on the ecology of intertidal fishes at UQ in 2015 and I am now interning at KAUST where I work on the model organism Aiptasia.
