Thomas is the co-founder and president of the nonprofit organization "La Paillasse" in Paris, one of the world's largest community laboratories, commonly called hackerspaces, that foster open biotechnology. He is an active member of the Do-it-yourself Biology (DIYbio) community, organizing the launch of the DIYbio Europe network and working regularly as one of its spokespersons. He is currently pursuing his PhD studies in Synthetic Biology at iSSB, a CNRS-Genopole research institution. Convinced that the 21st century will be the century of biotechnologies, he is now focusing on making biology more accessible to use as a technology for citizens and amateurs.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
