Co-founder and CMO of Cellen. Cellen is a HealthTech company on a mission to improve the health and wellbeing of people living with chronic conditions.
I have been an NHS consultant since 2016. I trained in France where I have been Chef de Clinique – Assistant universitaire des hôpitaux de Paris. I practice Obstetrics and Gynaecology and trained in Maternal and Fetal Medicine. I also have an MSc in Genetics. I participate in research and teaching in my daily life.
I have been on several humanitarians missions and have worked in places as different as the slums of India, Syrian refugee camps at the beginning of the war, the Jungle of Calais with migrant population from Africa, the Middle East or South east Asia.
When I am not delivering babies, doing researching on fetal genetic diseases, teaching to medical students or caring for patients in a refugee camp, I actively participate in the Health Tech scenes in France and in the UK. I am the founder and organiser of the first Startup Weekend Health in France and in the UK. I am the Techstars mentor in Health Tech for the London accelerator, belong to the CCIO network, am the Health Tech Chapter Leader for the French Tech, etc.
