Biography

After a PhD in Particle Physics (1999), AJ he worked on the computational design of proteins, using molecular modeling techniques. Afterwards, after moving as Assistant Professor to Ecole Polytechnique, he developed computational design methods for metabolic networks, transcriptional networks, and particularly RNA networks. In 2009, after moving to CNRS-Genopole as senior researcher, he started his experimental microbiology lab where he could validate experimentally his computational methodologies. He then developed and used automated microscopy and microfluidics chips for single-cell validations. In 2013, he moved to the University of Warwick as Full Professor, where he is developing new cell-culture bioreactors for directed evolution, which he applies to engineer the first synthetic bacteriophage. He also is developing a novel gene regulation relying on RNA. He has coordinated several Synthetic Biology international consortia and he is member of the editorial boards of ACS Synthetic Biology and the J. of Biol. Engineering.
