I am a French student in biology and bioengineering, mostly focused on food science, at the University of La Rochelle. To validate my degree, I have to complete a three-month internship, which I have the honor to do at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Sadly, because of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic it had be to be done online. I joined the Deheyn lab in order to work on bioluminescence focused on brittlestars. I work on the identification of the photoprotein involved in the bioluminescence, and on the mechanism that explains how bioluminescence occurs in this organism.
A science nerd at heart, I also read, collect fossils and do movie marathons in my free time.
