Biography

Academic Degrees B.S. (1996) University of Paris V – Rene Descartes M.S. (2000) University of Technology in Compiegne M.S. (2000) North Carolina State University Ph.D. (2004) North Carolina State University M.B.A. (2011) University of Wisconsin – Madison Research Interests Our laboratory focuses on the biology and genetics of CRISPR-Cas immune systems in bacteria. Using microbiology, molecular biology and genomics approaches, we investigate the use of CRISPR-Cas systems for three types of applications: 1. Exploitation of CRISPR spacer hypervariability for genotyping and phylogenetic studies of beneficial and pathogenic bacteria 2. Leveraging CRISPR-mediated interference for building up phage resistance in probiotic strains and starter cultures used in food manufacturing 3. Harnessing of Cas9-mediated, re-programmable dsDNA cleavage for genome editing in bacteria These activities provide insights into the genetic and molecular processes that drive CRISPR-mediated adaptive immunity in bacteria, and generate novel tools for the manipulation of industrially relevant organisms for food and biotechnological applications.
