Ninon obtained an engineering degree in Bio-informatics and Modelling at the National Institute of Applied Sciences – INSA – of Lyon (France) in 2014, and a master degree in plant biology from the University of Lyon in 2015. After a 6-month internship in the Biostatistics team of a plant breeding company, she continued to work there as a biostatistician during 8 months. She was in charge of developing a new analysis tool for plant breeders: mixed-multivariate models, using pedigree and genomic information, for multi-traits and multi-environments analyses.
