Welcome to my webpage. I am currently a CNRS permanent researcher in the Theoretical Biochemistry Lab of the IBPC. I am working at the interface between physics, chemistry and biology using theoretical and simulation tools, but in strong interaction with experiments. This page presents an overview of my current and past research interests as well as details about my academic background and publications.


Group news 


  • Oct. 2020 Welcome to Marie, who spent 6 months already in the lab for her M.Sc. project with Élise, and who is now starting her PhD in the group, working on simple ribozyme reactivity and how it can be tuned to obtain simple replicators. This PhD is also supervised by Damien Laage at ENS and Élise Duboué-Dijon in the lab, and is funded by the Origin's of Life initiative at PSL (IRIS OCAV).


  • Sep. 2020 Irene Maffucci's just published papers have received wide acclaim, with the first one selected as a Very Important Paper in Chemistry - A European Journal, and the other one being selected by PCCP's editors as one of the 2020's HOT papers!


  • Sep. 2020 Welcome to Zakarya, who will do a long M.Sc. internship in the group, working on Machine-Learling approaches to chemical reactivity.


  • Sep. 2020 Congratulations and a second welcome to Aimeric, who has defended his M.Sc. thesis and will now start his PhD in the group, working on the melting of RNA duplexes.
