Our new modelling work with S. Genet (Sorbonne Univ.), about neurons of the deep nuclei of the cerebellum has just been accepted in the Journal of Mathematical Neuroscience

A new paper in ISBI conference in collaboration with C. Kervrann's (Inria Rennes) and U. V. Naegerl's labs on 3D calcium imaging in astrocytes (see here)

Check out the new book we edited on computational glioscience, the computational approach to the study of glial cells

I am also very happy by our edition of another new book on the relation between Sex and Gender: from biology to sociology (in French).


About me

I am a "Directeur de Recherche" (i.e. research professor, with tenure) with Inria, the French National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology.

I am also serving as Inria's deputy scientific director for the fields digital biology and digital health.

My research activities are carried out with Inria Project-Team Beagle, that is also co-affiliated with the LIRIS laboratory.

We are located in Lyon, France.

A computational cell biologist, I use computer and mathematical models to study intracellular dynamics; in particular:

  • the intracellular biochemical networks at work in synaptic plasticity and its modulation, especially by astrocytes.
  • the influence of space and molecular crowding in cell signaling and biochemistry.
The list of my publications and access to the articles is available here.
