Science, food and baking are my ingredients to understand what surrounds us. I decided to combine them together!

My research projects can be divided into two main parts. The first concerns diet-gut microbiota interactions and their impact on host health. The aim is to understand the role of dietary fibers in the regulation of host glucose metabolism by analyzing either their impact on the bacterial enzymatic activities involved in bile acid transformation or in the regulation of white adipose beiging via the production of specific bacterial metabolites. The second part of my research focuses on the microbiology aspects of our field and the aim is to analyse the impact of newly isolated human bacterial species on host physiology using different models such as mono-colonization of germ-free animals or developing co-culture techniques to study gut bacteria-cell interactions.
