I received a PhD in Neuroscience at the Université de la Méditerranée, Marseille, France
and a Medical degree (MD) at the University of Heidelberg, Germany

My research focuses on dysfunction of neural systems involved in neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s disease and fronto-temporal dementia), with a special interest in memory and behaviour
