Current Experience

  • Post-doctoral Fellow Massachusetts, United States
    Since February 2015

    Currently investigating the interactions between a host-defense protein and metal ions under anaerobic conditions in the context of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections. Examining the impact of a host-defense protein on bacterial biofilms under anaerobic conditions for providing new insights into the development of therapeutic approaches to treat bacterial infections in humans. Work involves protein overexpression and purification, biofilm formation, biofilm treatment and characterization.

Past Experience

  • Graduate researcher Mons, Belgium
    October 2010 --- September 2014

    Investigate the function of the CopB protein involved in copper resistance in Cupriavidus metallidurans CH34, a soil bacterium. Examine bacteria after metal exposures through electron microscopy techniques. Work includes protein overexpression, purification and characterization, transmission and scanning electron microscopies and immunocytochemistry. Train graduated students in the use of Western Blot, transmission electron microscopy and Bradford assay to help with lab procedures.
