I am a computational chemist, with experience ranging from reactivity in chemistry and biochemistry to drug discovery. I am « Chargé de Recherche » (researcher) at CNRS, working at the ENS (Paris). Above all, I believe in the predictive power of computational tools and like to work on applied problems in collaboration with experimentalists, aiming to use numerical studies before bench work. I am currently working on enzymes involved in the CO2 capture during the second step of photosynthesis, as well as on drug design.

Previous work focused on the study of mechanisms in organic chemistry, rationalisation of experimental results and the prediction of new reactions, design of new protein inhibitors, development of new algorithms to improve high-throughput virtual screening and enzymatic reactivity in non-aqueous media.
