Juliette obtained her Master’s degree in Genetics and Epigenetics from University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6). She joined Sophie Polo’s lab in January 2017 for her Master’s internship and then she pursued in the team as a PhD student. Her thesis project focuses on histone variant dynamics and their post-translational modifications in response to UVC damage in human cells.
