After obtaining my PhD in chemistry from the University of Fribourg in 2009, I started my research career in medicinal chemistry at the EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne). My research consisted in synthesizing and testing candidate molecules to stop the progression of cancer cells in vitro and in vivo.
However, I soon realized that teaching was my vocation when I had the opportunity to work as a substitute chemistry Teacher for the Swiss maturité section at Collège St Michel in Fribourg in 2013.
In 2014, I pursued my interest in education by agreeing to lead the synthesis laboratory at the Fribourg Institute of Chemistry to train apprentices for a CFC (Federal Certificate of Capacity) diploma in chemistry.
But it was in 2015, at the Collège Champittet Pully, that I held my first position in an establishment of the NAE (North Anglia Education) group, becoming the Laboratory Manager and teaching science in primary school and High Level Chemistry to students working towards the Swiss maturité diploma.
I am delighted to be part of the team of teachers at LCIS Aubonne because of its strong sense of community.
