Since 2015, I am a postdoc at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) in the Systems Biology Research Group (SBRG), working with Professor Bernhard Palsson to study the basic molecular and mechanistic underpinnings of cellular metabolism.
In 2013, the Swiss National Science Foundation funded my synthetic biology research at the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) / University of California Berkeley with Professor Jay Keasling on multi-strain comparisons of engineered E. coli strains.
In 2013, I completed a PhD in chemistry at the Swiss Institute of Technology (EPFL) with Professor Ursula Röthlisberger on computer modeling of enzyme catalysis.
In 2008, I was funded by the European Union in a joint masters degree program in physical chemistry (Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon & Universiteit van Amsterdam).
I started research as an undergraduate, supervised by Professor Ioan Andricioaei, at the University of Michigan to model the thermodynamics of DNA unzipping.
