I grew up in New-Caledonia, but later moved to France where I completed my three bachelor degrees at Rennes II University between 2009 and 2012. I continued my education at Rennes II University with a Master of Science in Physical Activity and health Sciences, which I completed in 2014. During my master degree, I contributed to the design and the realization of a quantitative and qualitative study assessing the student way of life, physical activity and health in Rennes, in partnership with the French School of High Studies in Public Health (EHESP) and the municipality of Rennes. My MSc thesis was entitled “Descriptive Epidemiology of Student Physical Activity, Sedentary Behaviors and Health in Rennes”. Outside of work I enjoy doing various recreational physical activities and more particularly outside physical activities like bouldering, running, hiking, and windsurfing.
