I develop HypoPhen, an image analysis software for the semi-automatic phenotyping of Arabidopsis seedlings.
I also work on a pharmacogenetics project trying to identify genes involved in the cardio-vascular response to beta-adrenergic stimulation in mice.
My scientific interests include dynamical systems theory, self-organization, statistical learning theory and large-scale biological data analysis. For additional information, you can consult my web page.
And before this, I worked on automatic speech recognition at the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley.
- 2009: Phd in cognitive robotics, LASA, EPFL
- 2004: Master in cognitive science, Université Paris VI

Teaching and outreach
- I am involved in the UNIL BSc course: "Solving Biological Problems that require Math"
- I am also co-organizing the SPSW 2012 summer school exercise session
- I also visit schools and tell them about medical genetics as part of the gene days
How to reach my office
Take the M2 metro and get off at CHUV. Then follow the dots on the picture. You will then be standing in front of my office window. Knock on the window and I'll see you and open the door. The building is called Bugnon 27 (its actual address) and the office number is 027 (ground floor).
