I am French and American and have lived in London for 10 years where I got my BSc in Biochemistry and PhD in Organic Chemistry (or more specifically Prebiotic Chemistry), both from UCL. I then pursued a postdoc at the Santa Fe Institute, working on agnostic life detection (or how to look for life without presupposing what it looks like).
I love learning and trying new things, from expanding my general science knowledge to things like designing, sewing, woodworking, and baking. In a past life I've also co-founded a start-up and sang Jazz professionally.
My last words will be "How hard can it be?" (while finding out it was, indeed, hard)
