I have recently obtained the FRM grant "amorçage jeunes équipes" and established my research team at the CBI in the summer of 2023. The main goal of my research programme is to understand how and why gene dosage compensation evolved, using the mouse X chromosome as a model, and to decipher molecular mechanisms that allow gene dosage to be sensed and decoded into developmental decisions.
