From 1999 to 2003, he worked on statistical modelling at the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (Inria), as a member of the IS2 project (Statistical Inference for Health and Industry). Then, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at AMAP "Plant Modelling" mixed research unit, Montpellier (France), with a grant from CIRAD.

Currently, he is a teaching assistant at Grenoble INP, member of the Mistis team of Laboratoire Jean Kuntzmann. He is the head of the statistics and data science tracks of the international Master's programme MSIAM (Looking for a high-level postgraduate programme in Data Science or Statistics? Have a look and apply at http://msiam.imag.fr/).

He teaches at the "École Nationale Supérieure d'Informatique et de Mathématiques Appliquées de Grenoble" Ensimag (engineering school of applied mathematics and computer science). Topics: fundamentals of statistics, computational statistics.

He was delegated to Inria team Virtual Plants (Inria Sophia) between September 2009 and August 2011. His research interests include computational methods for hidden Markov models, statistical analysis of tree-structured processes, discrete multivariate distributions and applications to signal processing and botany.

- Research
team: Virtual Plants
(Inria Sophia).

The Virtual Plants team is a joint team between Inria, CIRAD and INRA. It is located in Montpellier. The long-term focus of the project is to study plant development and its control by genetic processes.

Plants are branching living organisms that develop throughout their lifetimes. Organs are created by small embryogenetic regions at the tip of each axis, called apical meristems.

In the project Virtual Plants, we are interested in studying plant apical meristem functioning and development. We believe that a detailed analysis of apical meristem processes, based on advanced mathematical and computational methods and tools, will lead us to get a deeper and better understanding of plant development.
