Biography

I am a chemical engineer who studied for 7 years organometallic chemistry, catalysis and cross-coupling reactions under the supervision of outstanding mentors: undergraduate project in the lab of Pr. Paul Knochel (LMU, Munich), Ph.D. with Gérard Cahiez (DR CNRS, Chimie ParisTech, Paris), and postdoctoral studies with Pr. Bruce Lipshutz (UC Santa Barbara, California). In Cahiez’s lab I contributed to the field of green chemistry by using non-toxic manganese and iron salts to develop green metal-catalyzed coupling reactions. In Lisphutz’s lab we co-developed with Dr. Arkady Krasovskiy (Dow Chemicals, Michigan) a modification of the Nobel Prize Wining reaction named Negishi cross-coupling, where for the first time this reaction was completed in water at room temperature in a one-pot reaction by using safe and inexpensive surfactants as micelle nano-reactors. In 2012 I joined EcoFoG lab in French Guiana to develop interdisciplinary research studies at the frontier between natural products chemistry, chemical ecology, and analytical chemistry. This has permitted me to gain knowledge in pharmacology, microbiology, parasitology, entomology, molecular biology, ecology and evolution in the context of Amazonian forests. I am co-leading the group “Functional Chemodiversity and Applications” at EcoFoG with Nadine Amusant (Cirad) and our team includes Emeline Houël (Research Engineer, CNRS), Yannick Estevez (Research Engineer, CNRS) and Cyrielle Sophie (Technician, CNRS). Currently I am attempting to combine methods in analytical chemistry and molecular ecology to decipher the biosynthetic pathways of natural products in an evolutionary context. Our research in chemical ecology and evolutionary chemistry focuses on (1) the mechanism of heartwood formation in tropical woods, (2) community ecology of ants cuticular bacteria, (3) the impact of latex in plant evolution.
