I completed a PhD at the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France) and a post-doctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT; Cambridge, USA), studying how the ocean controls hurricanes intensity and how hurricanes can in turn influence the climate via their interaction with the ocean.

I founded the Science Feedback initiative to help the scientific community play a leading role in tackling online misinformation and providing the public with accurate information on scientific issues.
