Assistant Professor, Faculty of Science



I have been a Assistant Professor (previously called Lecturer) in Systems Biology at the School of Mathematical Sciences since January 2013. In 2001 I received an Engineer's Degree from ENSIMAG and a Master's in applied mathematics from Université Joseph Fourier. In 2005 I completed a PhD in applied mathematics at the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (France). From 2005 to 2007 I was a post-doctoral researcher at Inria Sophia-Antipolis (J.-L. Gouzé). From 2007 to 2008, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Theoretical Physics (CPT) and Immunology Centres (CIML) in Marseilles (with P. Ferrier and B. Fernandez). I was hired in 2008 as a "Chargé de Recherches" at Inria, the French research institute in computational sciences, in the Virtual Plants team in Montpellier, France, until I moved to Nottingham.

My research interests include the use of dynamical systems theory and mathematical modelling to analyse and understand biological systems, in collaboration with scientists from various disciplines.
