Lisa was born in Germany and grew up in the Paris suburbs, near Créteil. Her passion for chemistry began in the seventh grade, and she has since continued her studies in this field, notably by participating in the Chemistry Olympiads. She came to the capital to study at the École Normale Supérieure, where she discovered bioinorganic chemistry.

She has been immersed in a cultural mix that is dear to her, she loves languages and has done several internships abroad. She particularly likes to taste the cuisines of the whole world: Paris is perfect for that! In her spare time, she practices roller derby, aikido, and has been playing classical guitar since childhood. She is also involved in a few associations, particularly as a teacher.

She has completed a Msc internship in the Gasser/Cariou group and is currently continuing her PhD project in the same group working on metla-based complexes for in vivo photocatalysis thanks to an ENS fellowship.
