Claire-Elise studied at the University of Bordeaux and graduated with a degree in Molecular Biology and a Master's degree in Biological Anthropology and Prehistory where she began to specialize in ancient DNA. She then went on to complete her PhD in palaeogenetics and palaeogenomics, using a population-based approach to study Iron Age groups, particularly in northern France with a major focus on cross-Channel relations.
Claire-Elise's research investigates the genetic identity of Iron Age populations, applying a systematic confrontation of archaeological and genetic data in order to place the communities in their local, regional and macro-regional perspective.
