I am a CNRS Directeur de recherche. From January 2011, I work in the Laboratoire d'Informatique Gaspard-Monge at the University Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée, where I belong to the AlgoB group.
My general field is Theoretical Computer Science, but my research
subjects evolved over time. During last years, I
have been doing research in the area of discrete algorithms:
combinatorial algorithms, algorithmic complexity, algorithm design and
engineering. I am also particularly interested in bioinformatics,
especially in algorithmic methods of biosequence analysis. Please
consult my research page for more
I participated in the development of mreps, YASS and StoRM software for DNA sequence analysis, as well as path software and ReBLOSUM scoring for protein sequence comparison. I also participated in the development of the Norine database. More recently, I have been involved in the design of RNFtools: a naming format for simulated NGS reads and associated toolbox.
