I have recently completed a Ph.D. degree in microbiology specializing in infectious diseases at Aix-Marseille University, France. I am very much interested in the field of gut microbiome research and antibiotic resistance. I have a dual competence as a pharmacist and microbiologist. I mainly worked in the exploration of the gut microbiota by culture and metagenomics and the implication of the digestive microbiota in metabolic diseases such as diabetes and in infectious diseases. Therefore, I have strong technical skills in the culture and identification of microorganisms, molecular biology techniques, and bioinformatics. I'm one of the pioneer students who worked on the microbial culturomics, a concept initiated by Prof. Didier RAOULT.
