Structural biochemist, mountaineer, programmer, blogger ;-)
Professionally, I am structural biochemist passionate by the dynamics of multidomain proteins and flexible protein regions. To tackle these biological unknowns I’ve specialized in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and mostly the Paramagnetic NMR. Life brought me the opportunity to learn many molecular biology techniques to express and purify the proteins I want to study. In parallel, I always felt great interest and joy in computer programming and, inevitably, I ended up creating the Farseer-NMR software project, which I currently develop.
Out of the lab, we are mountain lovers who are always looking for an excuse to be away from home :-) We attempt always a pure style in mountaineering and diving, keeping to minimums our impact in Nature, even if this means loosing some sights or opportunities. We were lucky to learn from the best in our surroundings, hopefully we will honour those teachings. And no adventure is concluded without a beer and a story telling ;-)
Hmmm… I guess at this moment I can say I am a Linux enthusiast and an increasingly committed chess player, are you up for a game? Find me on Lichess, an open source and definitively the best chess server out there.
Little by little I am migrating my old blog to here.
