Biography

I have been a Assistant Professor 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 de Grenoble. 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. From 2007 to 2008, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Theoretical Physics (CPT) and Immunology Centres (CIML) in Marseilles, France. 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.

Research Summary

Current Research

Broadly speaking, my research concerns dynamical systems and their application to complex phenomena, especially in biology. I study different formalisms: discrete or continuous in time and/or space, as well as intermediary, hybrid systems, in particular piecewise-linear formulations. I am interested in the relationships between these types of models, as well as their applications to model real world phenomena, which often requires a combination of varied mathematical frameworks.

Future Research

I welcome any applications for PhD. For a few examples of potential PhD projects, see:
