I am a lecturer and a researcher at the department of Ambulatory Care and Community Medicine of the University of Lausanne. I am trained as a general internist, obtained my board certification (FMH) in general internal medicine in 2007 and my doctoral thesis (MD) at the University of Lausanne in 2008. In 2009 I got a grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) to do a postdoc in Boston, USA. I joined Nancy Rigotti’s team as a research fellow at the Tobacco Research and Treatment Center of the Massachusetts General Hospital. In parallel, I completed a Master in Science in Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health and got an MSc in Epidemiology in 2012. In 2015 I obtained a 3-year Ambizione Grant from the SNSF to conduct a research project on smoking cessation in people with type 2 diabetes. My main research interest is the interaction between smoking and metabolism. I use mixed methods to pursue my aims of understanding the specificities of type 2 diabetic smokers to adapt clinical interventions for smoking cessation. I secondary developed a research interest around gender and health and currently work on a project to implement gender in the pregraduate teaching of medical students at the University of Lausanne.
