1. Education

Born in 1954, Audin is a former student of lEcole normale superieure de jeunes filles within the Ecole Normale Superieure. She earned a Ph.D. degree in 1984 from the University of Paris-Saclay, with a thesis written under the supervision of François Latour.

2. Fathers death

Audin is the daughter of mathematician Maurice Audin, who died under torture in 1957 in Algeria, after having been arrested by parachutists of General Jacques Massu. On January 1, 2009, she refused to receive the Legion of Honour, on the grounds that the President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, had refused to respond to a letter written by her mother regarding the disappearance of her father. Finally in September 2018, French president Emmanuel Macron admitted that Maurice Audin was tortured to death and apologized on behalf of France.
