I completed my PhD in Epidemiology from the University of Paris Descartes, France, in November 2019. My doctoral research examined the impact of neonatal unit policies on breast milk feeding at discharge among preterm infants from the french EPIPAGE-2 cohort study. In September 2018, I moved to Sweden and did my postdoc at the Clinical Epidemiology Division, Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, led by Professors Sven Cnattingius and Olof Stephansson, where I focused my research on preterm outcomes using Swedish national databases.

Since september 2020, I continue from France a research collaboration with the Reproductive Epidemiology Research Unit, Clinical Epidemiology Division.
