Post-Doctoral Researcher


I study the affective impact of painful procedures (such as injections and disbudding) on dairy calves. I joined the Animal Welfare Program in 2016, I was attracted by the diversity of research topics, great group of students and professors.

I am from Amiens, France. In 2016, I graduated from a French agronomy school with a specialization in animal production. During my education, I have worked as an intern and research assistant in an organic vegetable farm (France, 2013), an experimental sheep farm (Lincoln University, New Zealand, 2014) and UBC’s dairy education center in which I took part in Becky Meagher’s study on cow’s motivation to participate in learning opportunities (2015).
