I am an assistant in the environmental physical-chemistry group. My research project focuses on the characterisation and quantification of microplastics in compost, and the degradation of compostable plastics in composting conditions. The aim of this project is to get a global view of microplastic pollution in local compost, giving clues about its origin, and evaluate the efficiency of actual solutions, such as compostable plastics.

Concerning my previous formations, I received a Bachelor’s degree of Science HES-SO in Environmental Engineering at Hepia (Haute école du paysage, d’ingénierie et d’architecture de Genève), and a Master’s degree in Environmental Sciences at the University of Geneva.
