With a background in human nutrition, I obtained a PhD in nutritional epidemiology in 2006 on the links between eating behavior and obesity. I have done two post-doctoral fellows, one in within the EPIC-InterAct project and one at the MRC epidemiology unit on infant temperament and breastfeeding. I was recruited at INSERM in 2011 and then as a senior researcher at INRAE in 2018 to develop a project on the development of eating behavior in childhood and on the links between perinatal nutrition and children's health and development. Specifically, I am studying the extent to which adherence to nutritional guidelines during pregnancy and infancy is associated with child health and development. Regarding infant feeding, beyond breastfeeding, I am interested in the nutritional composition of infant formulas and complementary feeding. I coordinate the nutritional part of the EDEN and ELFE birth cohort studies.
