Brief bio:

The plasma membrane that delimits the inside from the outside of the cell is the place of many signaling events. During my master, I work on several plasma membrane receptors and membrane associated proteins. Beyond the proteins themselves, I got interested in the interplay between membrane lipids and membrane associated proteins in signaling pathway. After finishing my master degree, I started my PhD in Dr. Yvon Jaillais’ lab to study the synthesis of phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate, a signaling lipids crucial for the electrostatic field of the plasma membrane. We unraveled the existence of a protein complex containing the PI4-Kinase alpha1 at the plasma membrane.

I am pursuing my work in the context of cellulose synthesis at the University of Copenhagen in the lab of Prof. Staffan Persson, trying to understand how membrane signaling lipids can regulate cellulose synthase complex trafficking and dynamic at the plasma membrane.
