ABOUT ME

I have a background in mathematics and obtained a PhD in Public Health, biostatistics from the University of Bordeaux in October 2018. During my PhD, I worked on modeling the dynamics of the immune system following immunization with an Ebola vaccine under development, using ordinary differential equations. I also developed a method for optimizing schedules of immune therapy injections for HIV-infected patients. I am currently a postdoc at Columbia University Medical Center and work on identifying early immunological factors associated with the evolution of the clinical state of a patient after stem cell transplant.

SCIENCE OUTREACH

I am interested in and try to be involved in communication and outreach events, particularly with children/teenagers. This way, I hope I can give another perspective on science to mid- and high-school students, and maybe inspire some of them to be more curious about the world and to pursue a scientific path. I also hope I can help in improving the representation of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields. In New York, I have joined the CUPS (Columbia University Postdoctoral Society) outreach and communication committee, and the 500 Women Scientists group. 

Some events I have recently attended or been involved in:

 

D4P: Modeling, Math, and Social Mixing. Organized by RockEDU Science Outreach.  

Spring Book Club. Discussion on "Weapons of Math Destruction", by Cathy O'Neil. Organized by 500WS. 

Girls' Science Day - April & November 2019. Organized by WISC. 

Science Trivia Night. Organized by CUPS outreach and communication committee. 

Super Saturday STEM expo. Organized by Manhattan's Community School District 5. 

Fall Book Club. Discussion on "Superior: The Return of Race Science", by Angela Saidi. Organized by 500WS.
