I was born in 1980 and grew up in Grenoble. After graduating in Biology, I opted for studying Science Journalism in 2004. Quickly, I decided to work as a freelancer, which allows me to live in the south of France and to conduct long-term investigative work and field reports. My favorite subjects are medicine, biology and the environment. Today, I regularly collaborate with various media (Science et Vie, Le Monde, La Cité des Sciences...). I am also the author of TV documentaries (last one: Devenir il ou elle, France 5, Le Monde en Face, 2017) and books (last one: Immunisés ? Un nouveau regard sur les vaccins, Editions Premier Parallèle, 2017). I received several awards (Prix Varenne, French science journalist award, Ecoreportage award, Trophée signatures santé...) and benefited from different scholarships (SCAM, EJC…).
