Scientific summary

Since 2018, I have been serving as deputy scientific director of Inria, in charge of the research in digital biology and health. My mission consists in implementing Inria’s strategy vis-à-vis our academic and industrial collaborators on the application of numerical sciences (applied mathematics, computer science, artificial intelligence) to biology or health and in propounding potential new perspectives to our research teams working in those fields.

A computational cell biologist, my research focuses on mathematical and computer models of the spatio- temporal dynamics of biochemical reactions involved in cell signaling, in particular in brain cells: neurons and astrocytes.

My publication track comprises more than 70 articles, mostly in journals for experimental and computational biology but also in computer science and applied mathematics.
