Interdisciplinary Research Manager

Combining synthetic biology, microscopy and computer science to answer fundamental questions concerning tissue development.

I am an interdisciplinary research manager, combining synthetic biology, microscopy, and computer science to answer fundamental questions concerning tissue development. I am an enthusiast of laboratory automation and automated data analysis. I am looking forward to putting my skillset into developing products and services improving research and the quality of human life.

Currently, I am a research fellow at CRI, where I lead the Synthetic FlyLab. I am a past EMBO and Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the ICM and VIB, a graduate of the DIGS-BB doctoral program at MPI-CBG in Dresden.

In my private life, I am a hobby photographer, biker, and private pilot.

Professional Experience

2022 - Present

Synovance, Évry, France

I lead the strain development team, improving the yield and reducing fermentation cost of existing pathways. I create strains expressing novel pathways for the sythesis of valuable chemicals.

I develop and implement laboratory automation pipelines. I maintain automation software and hardware.

Together with the CSO and in collaboration with the fermentation team, I set new research and development directions.

  • Precision fermentation
  • Strain development
  • Genome editing
  • Biosynthetic pathways
  • Laboratory automation
  • Metabolic engineering

2019 - 2022

Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity, Paris, France

I led a team of up to 8 researchers, working on several projects, developing synthetic biology tools for Eukaryotic model organisms. I set the research directions and evaluate the results.

As part of the faculty, I shaped the development and human resources strategy of a research institute.

I taught and trained undergraduate and graduate interdisciplinary students.

  • Synthetic transctiption factors
  • Genome editing
  • Cell culture
  • Animal transgenesis
  • Metabolic engineering

2016 - 2018

ICM Institute for Brain and Spinal Cord, Paris, France

I managed an interdisciplinary research project studying transcriptional mechanism of neurodifferentiation.

I supervised undegraduate interns and master students. I coordinated collaborations with other teams.

  • Cellular differentiation
  • Tissue imaging
  • Transcriptomics
  • Automated image analysis
  • Machine learning

2011 - 2016

VIB – Flemish Institute of Biotechnology, Leuven, Belgium

I created novel fluorescent reporter system to measure gene expression levels in vivo. I designed and executed the experiments, analysed and interpreted the results.

I supervised undergraduate interns.

  • Fluorescent reporter design
  • Genome engineering
  • Animal transgenesis
  • High-throughput assays
  • Genetics

2006 - 2011

Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden, Germany

I constructed and mapped genomic libraries for four sequenced Drosophila species. I developed high-throughput, genome-wide gene tagging strategies.

I collaborated with leading microscope manufacturer on development of a novel system. I developed protocols for in vivo imaging of intact embryos.

  • Genomic libraries
  • Recombineering
  • Fluorescent reporters
  • Automated liquid handling
  • In vivo imaging
  • Lightsheet microscopy
  • Long-term time-lapse imaging


Scionics Computer Innovation GmbH, Dresden, Germany

I prototyped and designed software for planning, execution and result storage of high-throughput, genome wide gene tagging projects.

I led development team implementing this system. I worked with automated sample handling company to integrate the system with their product.

  • Bioinformatics
  • Clone mapping
  • Automated clone selection
  • Liquid / sample handling
  • Jave EE
  • Spring framework
  • Hibernate


Ph.D. in Biology

2006 - 2011
