Christophe obtained his MSc in Biotechnology and High throughput analysis from the École Supérieure de Biotechnologie de Strasbourg and the University of Strasbourg (France) in 2018. During his master thesis, he developed a microfluidic platform to rapidly assess the susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotics at the Fraunhofer Center for Manufacturing Innovation (Boston, USA). In 2019 he joined the Saliba lab as part of the HIRI Graduate Program in RNA and Infection. His research project aims at applying single-cell RNA-sequencing to dissect host-pathogen interactions, focusing on the invasion of immune cells by Salmonella. During his free time, Christophe enjoys bouldering and cooking various dishes, including the famous Kouign-Amann from his home region.
