He was born in Ruffec, South West of France in 1974 and did his undergraduate studies in Chemistry at the University of Poitiers (1994-1997). Then he moved further South to carry out a PhD in the University of Toulouse, within the laboratory of Prof. Jacques Périé (1997-2001). He then travelled to the University of Cambridge (UK) to work for five years (2006-2010) as a post-doctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Shankar Balasubramanian within the department of Chemistry. In 2006, he joined the CNRS as an Assistant Professor in Strasbourg (France) and started my independent academic career as a junior group leader within the ‘Institut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires’ (ISIS). Four years later, in 2010, he moved back to the UK and became lecturer in the department of Bioengineering of Imperial College London (UK) where he is currently directing a research laboratory interested in the engineering of nucleic acid binding ligands and probes.
