I’m a researcher in computational cognitive neuroscience at Inria and the Institute of Neurodegenerative Diseases (Bordeaux, France). I’m investigating decision making, learning and cognition using computational models of the brain and distributed, numerical and adaptive computing, a.k.a. artificial neural networks and machine learning. My research aims to irrigate the fields of philosophy with regard to the mind-body problem, medicine to account for the normal and pathological functioning of the brain and the digital sciences to offer alternative computing paradigms.

Ongoing projects

Scientific Python (2019-2021) A series of three volumes on Scientific Python: Scientific Computation (Numpy), Scientific Visualization (Matplotlib) & Scientific Modelling (Scipy).

Ecomob (Regional grant 2019-2022) A joint project between University of La Rochelle, University of Bordeaux and Inria for the study of eco-mobility and the modelling of multi-criteria decision.

SOMA (ANR/FNSNF 2018-2021) This project is a unique collaboration between neuro-hardware, cellular computing, reconfigurable computing and neuroscience that aims at defining a new computational paradigm: a self-organizing and adaptive architecture with the design of an experimental hardware chip.

Macaque40 (ANR 2016-2019) The objective of this interdisciplinary study is to study the conditions for the emergence of a monetary economy under ecological conditions: a finite number of agents with limited rationality and time constraints.

Psyphine (CNRS, 2019-2020) This multidisciplinary group (computer science, philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, linguistic, ethnology) studies cognition from a theoretical and experimental perspective. We’ve designed a robotic lamp and study how people interact with it and interpret its behavior.


Glumpy is is a python library for scientific visualization that is both fast, scalable and beautiful. Glumpy offers an intuitive interface between numpy and modern OpenGL.

Freetype-GL is a C library for displaying text in OpenGL using one vertex buffer, one texture and the Freetype librart with flawless rendering quality in orthographic mode.

Machine learning recipes is a collection of stand-alone examples of machine learning algorithms in Python covering multi-armed bandits, artificial neural networks and Markod decision Processes.

DANA is a Python library for distributed asynchronous numerical and adaptive computing. The computational paradigm supporting the dana framework is grounded on the notion of a unit that is a set of arbitrary values that can vary along time under the influence of other units and learning.

Some artworks I designed for conferences and events I organized or co-organized over the years.


I appear (in general) as the first author when I have done the work prior to writing (design, modeling, implementation and/or analysis) and as the last author (or penultimate for some collaborations) when I have directly supervised or initiated the work (student, doctoral student, post-doctoral fellow). On the whole of my bibliography, I have about 200 co-authors and my scientific spectrum is mainly included in neurosciences and machine learning with however notable contributions in computer graphics, open and reproducible science and scientific visualization.
