- I did my bachelor and master degrees in France, in the field of plant-microbe interactions. My PhD focused on root nodule symbiosis and was conducted in the Laboratory of Plant-Microbe Interactions in Toulouse (France). In October 2014, I joined the group of Jennifer Lewis in the Plant & Microbial Biology department of UC Berkeley (USA) as a postdoc. My current work consists of the characterization of ZAR1-mediated immunity against the bacterial pathogen P. syringae, using biochemical approaches to dissect the molecular interactions and conformational changes in ZAR1 protein complexes.
