After completing a PhD in plant secondary metabolism (Tours, France), with a focus on terpenes, I moved on to a new research topic at the University of Lausanne's Department of Plant Molecular Biology (Switzerland), under the supervision of Professor Pierre Goloubinoff. My research focuses on plant heat stress signaling and response, specifically examining the role of heat-shock proteins in repairing cellular damage caused by misfolded proteins and aggregates, as well as protecting against future events such as heat waves. I am using Physcomitrella patens and Arabidopsis thaliana as model organisms, as well as yeast.
In addition to my primary research, I am also working on several projects related to molecular biology, bioinformatics, and biochemistry, leveraging my skills and knowledge of heat stress and heat-shock proteins. During the COVID-19 pandemic, these projects have taken on added significance where I have been able to apply my expertise in these areas to various projects related to the pandemic.
