I studied chemistry at Université Paris XI and moved to Strasbourg to do  my  PhD  under  the  guidance  of  Dr Charles Mioskowski. In 2001, I joined Rhodia Chirex Inc. (Boston, USA) for an industrial placement where I worked on various palladium-­‐ and copper-­‐catalyzed aryl bond-­‐ forming processes in collaboration with Professor Stephen L. Buchwald at MIT. After a postdoc with Professor Alan C. Spivey  at  Imperial College London (UK) working in the field  of  asymmetric organocatalysis, I joined Professor K. C. Nicolaou’s group at The Scripps Research Institute (USA) to work on the synthesis of new epothilone B analogues and on the total synthesis of vannusal A. In 2005, I joined the CNRS as a permanent researcher in the group of Professor Janine Cossy at ESPCI Paris where I was promoted to the rank of CNRS Director in 2015. The same year, I started my own group at Queen Mary University of London where we are principally interested in the development of new synthetic tools with an emphasis on structural and functional complexity. These methods span within the areas of organocatalysis, transition metal catalysis and, more recently, bio-­‐hybrid catalysis.
