About me

I studied chemistry at the "Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Montpellier" (ENSCM). I joined the group of Pr. P. Pale in Strasbourg to obtain a PhD in Organic Chemistry. After a Bayer CropScience post-doctoral position into the group of Pr. J.-M. Beau (Orsay, France), I Joined the group of Dr. G. Masson in ICSN (Gif-sur-Yvette, France) as post-doctoral fellow. In September 2011, I was appointed Assistant Professor at the Université Paris-Sud into the group of Pr. D. Bonnaffé. My scientific interests include chemical biology, glycochemistry, (organo)catalysis and new synthetic methodologies.
