Research interests

I am interested in how skin cancer (melanoma) evolved specific mechanisms to repair its DNA, rendering it notoriously resistant to radiotherapy. I am focusing on the melanoma-specific protein called MITF and its new role in the regulation of DNA repair pathways. My further aim is to identify a new vulnerability we could take advantage of in personalised melanoma therapies.


I did my Master’s degree and PhD in Grenoble, France where I studied the mechanisms of cellular aging in mammalian cells. My work was published in Cancer Research in 2009.
