I have 12 years of international research in Genetics and Oncology and speak fluently English, French and Italian. I am enthusiastic and a great team player. I am seeking new challenges and wish to work in industry to apply my research expertise and improve patient care.


Current Experience

  • Research associate
    Since October 2013
    My work focuses on how dysregulation of the tumor suppressor Hippo pathway contributes to cancer development.

Past Experience

  • Research associate
    October 2007 --- September 2013
    The goal of my work was to understand how dysregulation of signaling pathways (Wnt, BMP) that control stem cell proliferation leads to the development of tumors.

  • Postdoctoral Researcher
    September 2004 --- May 2007
    Defect in cell division can lead to abnormal chromosome content, one characteristic of human solid tumors. Understanding the mechanisms of cell division can give insights into how tumors develop.

  • Teaching Assistant
