Short bio

Nicolas Bolik-Coulon was an undergrad at the Chemistry department of the École Normale Supérieure, Paris, where he received training in organic, inorganic and physical chemistry and then specialized in biophysics. He joined the Laboratoire des Biomolecules in 2016 for his master thesis under the supervision of Prof. Fabien Ferrage on the characterization of the structural ensemble of a long Intrinsically Disordered Protein (IDP) using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). As part of his program, he stayed another year in the lab developing computational tools to analyze high-resolution relaxometry data to characterize the dynamics of proteins over a wide range of timescales (pico- to nanosecond). In 2017-2018, he joined Prof. Wolfgrang Peti at the University of Arizona, Tucson, USA. He started his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Fabien Ferrage in 2018 on the development of tools to characterize the dynamics of protein by NMR.
