I focus my research activities on structural biology problems.

I did my PHD in the computer science laboratory (LIX) of Ecole Polytechnique, I developed new frameworks for modeling the structure of transmembrane proteins. I have implemented a structure prediction algorithm, which uses explicitly long-range residue interactions between amino acids. These techniques allow to compute in polynomial time the global minimum folding energy structure of transmembrane proteins. A web server is now available at http://bioinformatics.bc.edu/clotelab/transFold/

Since October 2005, I'm pursuing this activities in Bonnie Berger's lab and Srini Devadas lab at MIT.

I am also working on RNA structure. I develop (and implement) new algorithms to study their properties as well as their energy landscape. That is why I moved to the Peter Clote Lab at BC in january 2005.
