Postdoc Dimitri Tolleter is a fellow at Australian National University's College of Medicine, Biology and Environment. He received his BS and MS at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, and he went on to earn his Ph.D. at University of Angers. His work has been published in Science, The Plant Cell and other publications. Before coming to the RIPE Project, he studied the regulation of green algae photosynthesis at CEA Cadarache, and the relation between photosynthesis and coral bleaching at Stanford. In the RIPE project, Dimitri is working on CO2 dynamics around chloroplasts. He works on the inorganic carbon transporter B, from cyanobacteria, and its heterologous expression in tobacco and then in rice. This work is linked to the study of CO2 bicarbonate permeability in chloroplast.
