I finished my PhD in biochemistry at the Université de Montréal studying the evolution of the RNA subunit of mitochondrial Ribonuclease P. I am interested in studying the biochemistry and structure of protein/nucleic acids complexes. I joined the laboratory of Dr. Francis in 2015 as a research associate, and I am currently studying the mechanism of chromatin compaction by Polycomb proteins.
