Hugues Berry is a tenured reasearch professor ("directeur de recherche") with the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (Inria) in Lyon, France. He received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry & Biophysics in 1999 from the University of Technology of Compiegne, France and was appointed associate professor at the Biology Department of Cergy-Pontoise University, France in 2000. In 2004, he moved to Inria, first in Saclay, then in Lyon with project-team Beagle, a joint research group of Inria and University of Lyon.

Since 2018, he is serving as deputy scientific director of Inria, in charge of the research field "Digital Health, Biology and Earth".

He is also serving as an Associate Editor for PLoS Computational Biology.

His research interest is in computational cell biology and computational neuroscience. He currently focuses on the molecular networks implicated in spike-timing dependent plasticity and glial cell-neuron interactions, in particular through calcium dynamics in astrocytes. He also investigates the influence of space and macromolecular crowding in intracellular signaling and biochemistry, and the origin and effects of anomalous diffusion in the cells.
