A talented researcher with a master's degree in molecular and cellular biology from the University of Sfax, Tunisia, and a Ph.D. from the University of Sfax and University of Paris-Saclay in France, brings diverse expertise to her role. As a scientific project manager, she's part of two European Coordination Support Actions that emphasize the importance of the microbiome. Her journey led her to Umeå University in Sweden as part of the Excellence by Choice program. She's currently focused on investigating how gut microbes contribute to mucosal barrier degradation, a collaboration involving animal and human samples and in vitro experiments. Facing the challenges of research with an open mind, she values the process and learning from failures. Looking ahead, she envisions upgrading her career as a scientist and finds Umeå to be a cozy, international place welcoming everyone.
