After a PhD (2006) in Molecular and Cellular Developmental Biology that I carried out at the marine station in Villefranche-sur-mer, I moved to the Kewalo Marine station of the University of Hawaii (USA, 2007-2012) and started to work on the evolution of gene regulatory networks. During that time, I co-founded, and since then preside the non-profit organization Kahi Kai ("Unique Ocean" in hawaiian), that promotes the interest of marine organismes for fundamental and biomedical research to the larger public. In 2012, I received an ATIP-Avenir award to join the Institute for Research on Cancer and Aging in Nice (IRCAN, FRA) and established my research team aimed at studying the impressive regenerative capacity, stress resistance and longevity of cnidarians (sea anemones, corals).
