Gaël performed his doctoral research on human trophoblast stem cells in the laboratory of Dr. Laurent David at the University of Nantes, where he graduated with a Ph.D. in Cell Biology.
During this period, he moved to Vienna, Austria, where he collaborated with the team of Dr. Nicolas Rivron, working on human blastoids. Involved in multi-omics analyses, he graduated with a university degree in integrative bioinformatics (DUBii 2021) from the University of Paris (now Paris City University).
He joined the Rougeulle lab as a research engineer in bioinformatics to address dosage compensation from a computational perspective.
He enjoys visiting the world and learning about foreign cultures.
