About me

Starting from september 2012, I am an Associate Professor at Bordeaux University, and a researcher at the LaBRI laboratory in the BKB team.

I obtained my PhD in computer science at the University of Montpellier II in December 2010. I did my PhD at the LIRMM laboratory, under the supervision of Eric Rivals. The subject of my thesis was "Algorithms for whole genome comparisons applied to bacteria". While in Montpellier, I have been an ATER (Attaché Temporaire d'Enseignement et Recherche) at the University of Montpellier II. I subsequently worked as a post-doctoral researcher at INRIA Rennes institute in the Symbiose project team, with Pierre Peterlongo.

Before the PhD, I was a student at Ecole Normale Supérieure of Lyon and at University A.I. Cuza of Iasi, Romania.

The approaches I develop cover several axes that cover:
