Our teams: METHODS

After obtaining my PhD in Epidemiology, I completed my first postdoctoral fellowship at the NIH before coming to France through the NICHD-Inserm Exchange. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the METHODS team of CRESS-UMR1153.

Within the @Hotel-Dieu project, my current work focuses on digital health interventions such as biometric wearable devices and AI. Specifically, my research aims to review available methods to evaluate digital health interventions and to evaluate the strengths and limitations of these methods.
