I am originally an infectious disease scientist who has developed a genuine interest in bioinformatics. I believe that the use of big data and computational methods applied to biology will be a leverage point in our fight to tackle the current global health inequities. Moreover, the development of novel bioinformatics tools will be decisive for addressing the new, yet imminent health challenges that the world population will be facing in a near future. These include but are not restricted to emerging diseases or antibiotic resistance.
I am hoping to strengthen C3BI research, teaching, and service capacity to make it a critical and powerful collaborative resource for all the biology research undertaken at the Pasteur Institute. In addition, my vision is that C3BI is bound to play a pivotal and influential role in the computational biology landscape at the national and international level.
My missions are diverse, I am committed to
- Identifying opportunities and facilitating big scale projects including the support for grants application
- Ensuring the visibility of C3BI and fostering collaborations in the C3BI at the national and international level
- Fostering multiple partnerships with international bioinformatics structures
- Creating synergies among the C3BI research units, facilitating collaborations with other research units within Pasteur Institute Campus and with the CNRS.
- Contributing to the design and coordination of teaching and training programmes at the Pasteur Paris Campus and within the International Network of Pasteur Institutes.
- Strengthening bioinformatics capacity building and outreach within the International Network of Pasteur Institutes
- Managing the smooth operation (communication, activity reports, budgeting, human resources) of the C3BI within the Pasteur Institute and the CNRS.
