TRAINING / CAREER

Holder of a DUT in applied biology, I was recruited at the UMR181 INRA/ENVT (Toulouse) in 2001. In 2003, I joined the UMR1318 (Versailles) to work first on the mechanisms of post-transcriptional regulation, and then on cellulose biosynthesis during the cell elongation, both in Arabidospsis thaliana. I then joined the LIPME in 2011, to participate in biochemical studies on plant receptors microbial symbiotic signals. Since 2021, I have joined Benoit Lefebvre's group to work on the efficacy of arbuscular mycorrhiza.
