I obtained my PhD in 2013 from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC, Paris, France). During my thesis, I studied the pathophysiology of lipodystrophic and premature aging syndromes due to mutations in the LMNA gene on endothelial dysfunction and insulin resistance.


I joined the laboratory of Prof. Antonio Vidal-Puig at the end of 2013. My main area of research concerns the modulation of adipose tissue macrophages by their lipidome in the context of obesity and adipose tissue inflammation. Indeed, obesity is a chronic inflammatory disease characterised by adipose tissue infiltration with macrophages contributing to the metabolic and cardiovascular complications of obesity. More specifically, my studies focus on the role of fatty acid elongation and unsaturation on adipose tissue macrophages functional polarisation.
