Maude David completed her PhD at the Ecole Centrale Lyon on the “Bacterial Adaptation to Chlorinated Compounds”. her thesis focused on microbial adaptation to chlorinated solvents. Her work explored both the origin of dehalogenase genes and their ecologic role of the different microbial community members during chlorinated solvent bioremediation. Her published work shows the development of molecular biology tools in order to analyze microbial activity in the environment, such as phylogenetic microarrays, quantitative PCR, and the analyses of pyrosequencing data during the reductive dechlorination of perchloroethylene (PCE).
