Prof. Maxime Crochemore received his PhD in 1978 and his Doctorat d'état
(DSc) in 1983 at the University of Rouen.
He got his first professorship position at Université Paris-Nord in 1985
where he acted as President of the Department of Mathematics and Computer
Science for two years.
He became professor at Université Paris 7 in 1989 and was involved in the creation
of the University of Marne-la-Vallée where he is Professor, Emeritus from 2007.
He also created the Computer Science research laboratory of this university in 1991
and was the director until 2005.
He was Deputy Scientific Director of the Information and Communication Department of
CNRS from 2004 to 2006.
He was Senior Research Fellow from 2002 to 2007 and is Professor at King's College London,
Emeritus from 2016.
He is Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Helsinki.
Prof. Crochemore's research interests are in the design and analysis of algorithms.
His major achievements are on string algorithms, which includes pattern matching, text indexing,
coding, and text compression. He also works on the combinatorial background of these subjects
and on their applications to bio-informatics.
He has co-authored several textbooks on algorithms and published more than 250 articles,
among which around 200 are listed on the DBLP Bibliography Server as of July 2017.
He has been the recipient of several French grants and UK grants on string algorithms
and bio-informatics. He participated in a good number of international projects on algorithms
and supervised to completion more than twenty PhD students.
