I am Associate Professor in Internal Medicine in Cochin Hospital in Paris, France, and I am specialized in the management of systemic autoimmune diseases, especially systemic vasculitis.
I provide inpatient and outpatient care in our clinical department and assist French colleagues in the management of patients through our National Reference Center for Rare and Systemic Autoimmune Diseases.
My background has included alternatively academic and hospital activities.
I have made my Medical School and then my residency in Internal Medicine in Paris from 2002 to 2008. During my residency, I worked on the identification of target antigens of autoantibodies directed against fibroblasts in idiopathic and systemic sclerosis-related pulmonary hypertension in the lab of Prof. Luc Mouthon at Cochin Institute.
After my residency, I did my PhD in Immunology in the lab of Prof. David Klatzmann in Pitié-Salpétrière Hospital, for which my main project was the phenotypical and functional characterization of autoreactive B cells during hepatitis C virus-related autoimmunity and other autoimmune conditions.
As vice-President of the French Vasculitis Study Group, I coordinate some clinical therapeutic studies for patients with systemic vasculitis.
Since September 2016, I am working in the lab of Prof. Richard Locksley at UCSF on the role of epithelial-derived cytokines in innate immunity and allergic inflammation in airways.
