About Margaux

Margaux’s early interest in health and how drugs work led her to a degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences. She’s currently pursuing a PhD using computational tools to design new drugs and study structural biology. She soon realised while practicing as a pharmacist how important science communication is when health professionals communicate with their patients, as this can have a significant impact on how they perceive and follow their treatment. She thinks Science provides an infinite source of wonder, and aims at sparking curiosity for interesting scientific stories thanks to breakers.

Margaux is the editor of 1 Break:

Where do plants and animals live in the tropics?

Many plant and animal species inhabit the world’s major tropical areas with new species being discovered each year. But the numbers of species differ greatly between these areas. Thanks to new databases, we now show that Latin America has the largest number of species, followed by Africa and Southeast Asia. Defining the makeup of individual ecosystems will help us preserve them.
