I am a scientific researcher in computer science at Inria since 2002. I work in Montpellier, in the Zenith team of Inria on the analysis of very large scientific data. These data, derived from observations, experiments and simulation are indeed complex, often very large, and are at the heart of important issues to better understand the studied domains (agronomy, biology, medicine).
I have defended my Habilitation Thesis in 2009.
I did my PhD in computer science at Montpellier in co-supervision with the University of Saint-Quentin en Yvelines (graduated in 2001), in the area of knowledge discovery from databases. Until 2010 I worked in Sophia Antipolis on the development and application of these techniques for knowledge discovery in areas related to usage (such as navigation on Web sites) and large amounts of data.
- Big Scientific Data analytics.

- Scientific vice-leader of the “Scientific Data” axis of Numev.
- Area-Chair of IEEE ICDM (2014 and 2015).

Science popularization (médiation scientifique)
- I have coordinated a national network of colleagues for promoting code learning. This action has given the “KidEtCode” studios of Inria, and the involved colleagues have benefited from two training sessions on the subject.
- After some successful organizations of studios by colleagues in the network, we have written a series of interviews in where they give a feedback on “howto” set up a KidEtCode studio, find partners and provide relevant content.
- I have given a 3 days training to primary and high school teachers. This event, called “Graines de sciences” (Ecole de Physique des Houches) was funded and organized by “La main à la pâte”, a French foundation dedicated to science popularization.
- I have participated to the following events in Montpellier, and therefore participated in the effort of relaunching science popularization activities in Montpellier:
- I have co-organized and co-animated the Inria’s stand at “La fête de la science” (Montpellier), held by Genopolys (a science village).
- I have organized and animated several “Kid&Code” studios in the greater metropolitan area of Montpellier, involving the network of media libraries and the network of extracurricular activities.
- I have given session training to media libraries activity leaders. The goal is to accompany media libraries in the region of Montpellier and help them until they are autonomous in this activity.
- Scientific vice-leader, and contributor, of interstices.
- Member of the scientific committee for the edition of “Datagramme”, the game from Inria on science popularization.
- Member of the management board of “Les petits débrouillards” in Languedoc-Roussillon.
- Scientific responsible for schools visits in the Lirmm Laboratory.
