I am a Research Associate exploring the role of the circadian clock in controlling microglial polarization and neuroinflammation in dementia. I joined Marco Brancaccio’s group in May 2019, within the UK Dementia Research Institute at Imperial College London.

I received my MSc degree in Physiopathology, Pharmacology and Neurobiology at the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, France.

Then I completed my PhD in Neuroscience under supervision of Dr. Mounia Chami at Côte d'Azur University in Nice, France, during which I studied the implication of calcium channels dysfunction in Alzheimer’s Disease (Bussiere et al. 2017 J. Biol. Chem., Lacampagne et al. 2017 Acta Neuropathol., Bussiere et al. 2019 Cells) in Frédéric Checler’s group.
