Dr. Adélaïde Raguin

As a modeler, my current focus is on plant biopolymers, ranging from starch to cellulose. Developing mathematical and numerical models, I am interested in understanding the dynamics of complex enzyme-substrate interplay, that takes place either during production or degradation processes, both in terms of the enzymatic activities and the substrate spatial structure. Within CEPLAS I will pursue my ongoing research on plant cell wall degradation.
