Céline has a Masters in International Affairs from Sciences Po Paris and a Masters in Science and Technology from Université Pierre et Marie Curie. After obtaining these two Masters in environmental science and policy, she worked within the scientific department at the French Embassy in the United States, focusing on political and technological issues in environmental fields, especially the climate. She previously worked on these issues during her end of studies internship with the environment and energy team at the Center for American Progress, an American think tank based in Washington.

Céline has been actively involved in youth commitment to sustainable development. She was a youth delegate within the French delegation and took part in the organisation of the “MyCity+20” project, aimed at mobilising young people and ensuring their voices are heard within the framework of this international conference. She was also selected as a youth mobiliser to encourage young people to take part in the United Nations Development Programme web platform, “Rio+20 Dialogues”. Céline was president of Sciences Po Environment from 2010 to 2011 and received the Sciences Po student life award.
