My name is Liza Nguyen, I am from France (with croissants and baguettes). I’ve just graduated with a master degree in organic chemistry at Le Mans University and decided to continue with a Ph.D. in a Marie Curie program called ‘Stop Spread Bad Bugs’ that will take place between Norway and Italy.

Outside work, I go to the gym, do scuba diving and am an absolute fan of skiing (but apparently my body understand nothing about that and I spend my time falling more than real skiing).

Sometimes I play video games and often go on a hike with friends. The plan for the future is: survive the Ph.D. and then try to get a permanent position in a company abroad. Or maybe just try to not cry after the defense. Or during the Ph.D… Well, probably survival is more than enough, I’ll try my best.
