Brieuc Chauvin

Postdoctoral researcher


Brieuc studied Physics at the École Normale Supérieure, Paris, where he became interested in the interface between Physics and Biology. He obtained a Master’s degree on Soft Matter physics and Biophysics in 2017. After one year working at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Brieuc joined Dr. Patricia Bassereau’s group as a PhD candidate in Curie Institute, Paris. There he studied the effect of filamentous septins on the diffusion of different model of membrane components. He used biomimetic systems to study the intrinsic propensity of septin filaments to create diffusion barriers. 

He obtained his PhD in November 2022 before joining the group of Dr. Sophie Martin to study the characteristics of the biocondensate that appears during mating of S.Pombe. The in vivo approaches will be combined with in vitro reconstitution of the biocondensate to decipher which of its bio physical properties are essential for function.
