Associate Professor, epigenetics, University of Copenhagen

In 2005, I obtained a PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis in Nice, France where I on insulin signalling in the context of obesity and diabetes.
Then, I conducted my postdoctoral studies in the lab of Professor Zierath (current chairman of the Nobel committee) in Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. There I started to work on Epigenetics in type 2 diabetic patients.
In 2009, I was recruited as a Lecturer at the University of New South Wales Australia in Sydney, where I was involved in the first study showing epigenetic inheritance of a obesity (Ng, et al., Nature 2010).
In 2011, I joined the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, where I currently work as an Associate Professor.
I am 38 year-old and I have published over 20 research articles that altogether cumulate more than 1000 citations.
