I am a Professor at the Technical University of Denmark since 2021. I am also an Emeritus CNRS Director of Research at the Architecture et Fonction des Macromolecules Biologiques Laboratory in Marseille, France. I have developed the family classification of glycoside hydrolases and subsequently applied it to other categories of carbohydrate-active enzymes. Together with Pedro M. Coutinho we created the CAZy database (CAZy at http://www.cazy.org/), which has since been regularly updated.
