yeast intracellular evolution

About

Born in Perpignan (France), I spent my childhood in several countries before settling down in Belgium for my studies at the Free University Brussels (ULB) as a Chemistry major. I graduated in 1995. I got my PhD in 2001 from the ULB after studying the role the Npr1 kinase in the regulation of the yeast amino acid transporter Gap1 in Prof Bruno Andre's laboratory. To further my understanding of cell biology, I did my first postdoc in the laboratory of prof Peter Novick at Yale University between 2002 and 2006. There I investigated the role of the reticulon protein Rtn1 on the tubulution of the ER in yeast and the role of exocyst subunits in ER inheritance. I'm currently at the University of Strasbourg where I'm studying the role of PI3P in genetic diseases and on amino acid metabolism first in the laboratory of Dr Sylvie Friant (2006-2014) and since the start of the year in Prof Hubert Becker's. My interests lie in pursuing an academic career while applying my knowledge acquired to develop tools for medicine, in particular towards developing more efficient biosynthetic strains. I'm also very interested in reaching out to the community to improve science knowledge. Living a well-rounded life is very important to me, I enjoy many activities outside of academics including reading, history, movies and yoga.
