Speaker Charlène Roussel
Charlène Roussel holds a dual Ph.D. in Microbiology, Biotechnology, and Health (Université Clermont-Auvergne, France) and Applied Biological Sciences (Ghent University, Belgium). For nearly 4 years, she has been working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Nutrition and Functional Foods (INAF, ULaval). During her dual Ph.D. program spanning both French and Belgian universities, Charlène specialized in applied microbiology, the host-food-pathogen relationship, and in vitro simulation of the human digestive environment.
Currently, Charlène is actively involved in multiple research projects that center around the ecological interactions of microorganisms within the intestines. She also engages in the analysis of omics data to explore the effects of dietary molecules or prebiotics on intestinal microbial communities. The ultimate aim of these endeavors is to enhance overall health and mitigate the risk of diseases.
