After post-doctoral contracts in France and Germany, she joined Sorbonne University as a lecturer in 2013. She has been co-leader of the Atelier de BioInformatique team since 2019 at the laboratoire Institut de Systématique, Évolution et Biodiversité (ISYEB, UMR 7205), and is a junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France. since 2020. She is interested in the diversity, evolution and adaptation of non-model organisms and more particularly microorganisms in their environment. She studies planktonic communities and their interactions and impacts in ecosystems using systems biology methods. Member of the Tara Oceans expedition (2009-2013), she has been working, among other things, since 2010 on data at the interface between molecular biology, bioinformatics and oceanography.
