Email: Tristan Rossignol

Since November 2010, Tristan Rossignol joined the BIMLip team lead by Jean-Marc Nicaud as a "Chargé de Recherches" at the MICALIS institute (INRA-AgroParisTech, UMR1319, Jouy-En-Josas) headed by Stéphane Aymerich. He is involved in metabolic engineering, integrative and system biology of the oleaginous yeast Yarrowia lipolytica with an emphasis on lipid metabolism, biolipids and enzymes production, and development of metabolic engineering tools.

He is actually workpackage leader in The european project H2020 CHASSY (Model-Based Construction and Optimisation of Versatile Chassis Yeast Strains for Production of Valuable Lipid and Aromatic Compounds).

Tristan Rossignol has a PhD in food sciences from Université Montpellier II (2004). He first spent 2 years as a post-doctoral fellow (2004-2006) at the University College Dublin (Irlande) in Butler's group, working on genomic of a pathogenic yeast. Then he joined the Unité Biologie et Pathogénicité Fongiques (INRA USC2019) leads by C. D'Enfert at Institut Pasteur (Paris, France) as a post-doctoral fellow for 4 years (2006-2010), working on new antifungal compounds and biofilm development of pathogenic yeasts.
