What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your line of research

I’m currently finishing my PhD in microbiology in the group of Pilar Junier at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Regarding my line of research, I’m interested in Bacterial-Fungal Interactions in the soil ecosystem and in human health, and for the latter more specifically in host-microbe/host-pathogen interactions. I’m currently working on developing a bacterial control alternative to fight against pulmonary aspergillosis, instead of using antifungal drugs.

What are you excited about in science communication?

I’m really excited about sharing and communicating science in all its forms: lay communication, posters, presentations, articles, but also in promoting a broader adoption of preprints in the life sciences as a means to share results quickly to the community.

Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?

I chose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program because I’m interested in learning more about preprints in order to be a contact point for questions related to preprinting at my institution, and also because I want to create and run a preprint journal club in my doctoral program as a means of training on how to review a paper, which is an important skill to acquire as an early career scientist.

Ask me about…

I like reading books, watching series, cooking and hiking.
