About me

I obtained my PhD in immunology in the team of Emmanuel Scotet in Nantes' University, France. There, I studied the mechanism of antigenic activation of the main γδ T cell in the blood in human - the Vγ9Vδ2 T cells - in close relation with the biotech ImCheck Therapeutics (Marseille, France). Joining the team in 2022, I am now working on identifying ligands for orphan γδ T cell receptors.
