PhD in Sciences from Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB, Brussels, Belgium). I studied the mechanism and regulation of ammonium transport across cell membranes in yeast, ensured by Mep-Amt-Rh superfamily proteins. Expertise in molecular biology, yeast biology, structural biology, and protein biochemical and biophysical characterization. A Master's degree in Biochemistry from the University of Paris VII and a Master's thesis at the Institut Pasteur of Paris, focused on CpxA activity and regulation, a Histidine Kinase from bacteria, known to be involved in biofilm formation and virulence. Bachelor's degree at the University of Valencia (Spain), in Biotechnology. Research stages at the Institute of Biomedicine of Valencia (Spain) and the Institut Pasteur of Lille (France).
