Fun fact

I like reading, attending concerts (indie), a glass of good wine (can be more, if need be), cooking (and eating), (off-road) biking and France. All of this not necessarily in that order...

Research tracks


I am curious about the complexity of proteoforms and enjoy studying their modifications – especially at their N-terminal end –, the conformational space they occupy, how they interact and how they are altered in pathological conditions. More recently, my group stepped into the field of single-cell proteomics by using mass spectrometers as “quantitative microscopes” exploring single cells.
