My work is focused on the structural and dynamical characterization of various fluorescent proteins, including green and cyan variants of Aequorea Victoria GFP (Lelimousin et al. Biochem. 2009, Royant & Noirclerc-Savoye J. Struct. Biol. 2011, Goedhart et al. Nat. Commun. 2012) and phytochrome-based infrared fluorescent proteins (Shu et al. Science 2009, Yu et al. Nat. Commun. 2014). In addition, I contribute to the development of instruments, techniques and methods suitable to characterize the functional state of proteins in crystallo, study X-ray induced radiation damage and decipher enzymatic or photochemical reactions (Royant et al. J. Appl. Cryst. 2007, Jorgensen et al. Acta Cryst. F 2014, von Stetten et al. Acta Cryst. D 2015, Wickstrand et al. Biochim. Biophys. Acta 2015).
