Presentation

I am research engineer in the Exobiology group at the *Centre de Biophysique Moléculaire* ([CBM](http://cbm.cnrs-orleans.fr/en/home/), UPR4301), [CNRS](https://www.cnrs.fr/en), Orléans, France. I obtained my PhD in physics at the University of Poitiers, France, in 2007, after which I joined the Exobiology group in Orléans, where I acquired knowledge in geology, micropaleontology, planetology and space exploration. As the person in charge of different scientific instruments, in particular a Raman spectrometer and an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), I am particularly interested in searching for clues to demonstrate the biotic origin of ancient microfossils with the aim of using these biosignatures to help in the detection of putative traces of life on Mars. I obtained my Habilitation (HDR) in January 2017 for my work entitled *Methodology for the search for life on Mars*.
