I am a senior scientist, research director at CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research, France). I have thirty years’ experience in research in nuclear and particle physics, cosmology, Instrumental R&D, technology and innovation. Indeed, I have been working at large infrastructures such as CERN (European Organization for Particle Physics) and participated to several experiments on accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), The Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) or the Low Energy Antiproton Ring (LEAR). I have also participated to a space experiment led by NASA, the AMS experiment, in view to search for anti-matter in space. I had the privilege to contribute to the major discovery of this century in the field of particle physics, the Higgs Boson. I was team leader of a large ATLAS experiment research group. I was scientific project leader of the French National Grid infrastructure for another ten years. The National Infrastructure is composed of 13 institutions collaborating with the worldwide W-LCG collaboration led by CERN, which gathers 200 Institutions and 30 countries to provide the most performant Computing and Grid technology to the LHC experiments. In addition to research, R&D and management, I supervises PhDs and many other degree students, participate in researchers and engineers recruitment boards and is an EU expert evaluator for H2020-MSCA programmes. Having a strong background with Africa, particularly North Africa, I have played a coordinator role on behalf of my Institution, CNRS, to develop collaborations and schools in fundamental fields of physics such as Nuclear Physics, Particle physics and Cosmology and their related instrumentation. Since more than twenty-five years, I am contributing and managing many CNRS International Research Projects to promote science, physics and grid technology in Africa. I have organized the first African school in particle physics in Morocco in 2011 and participated to the organization of the first "physics for development" EPS conference in Brussels in 2012. I served as board member of the C13 committee of the IUPAP and the Physics for development group at EPS. I am co-founder and member of the steering committee of the ASFAP strategy project which aim is the African Science Renaissance. Gender balance is the other aspect that is of a great concern to me. In this respect, I have many activities to promote science at school towards girls and to fight against the ceiling glass and many other imbalances at University and at work. I was also the founder and the first president of the "Parité Science" association in the Alps region in France.
