I obtained my PhD in 2002 at the University of Bordeaux II (France) working on the "kinetic properties and biogenesis of the three human mitochondrial ADP/ATP translocators expressed in yeast S. cerevisiae".
I then went to do a first post-doc with Prof. Tokatlidis in IMBB-FORTH institute (Crete, Greece) until 2006 working on "Tim12, a pivotal protein for membrane protein translocation in yeast mitochondria"
In March 2006, I joined Prof. A. Baker's team as a post-doc at the University of Leeds where I started studying "the plant peroxisomal ABC transporter CTS ", an homologue of the human ALDP protein involved in adrenoleukodystrophy.
My third post-doc was done in the labortory of prof. J. Denecke from 2010, working on " plant vacuolar sorting mechanisms"
I was offered a senior lecturer position in Leeds Beckett University in 2015 and was promoted Reader in Cell Biology and Biochemistry in 2017.
Since 2015, I am a visiting researcher at University of Leeds.
I am developping my own Research projects and collaboration as well as supervising students at both Leeds Beckett University and University of Leeds<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
