I started my career 15 years ago as an engineer. I had for first tasks software and hardware administration of the laboratory as well as the development of a of multi-genomics relational database. During these first two years, I have acquired solid technical bases and a high degree of autonomy.
Later, I had the chance to work as an engineer in an INRIA project. In contact with the researchers, I have received training in software development. In particular, I participated in the development of the exploratory genomics platform “GenoStar”.
At the end of this project, I had the opportunity to complete my formation with PhD. The thesis I wrote led me to analyze, model and criticize the functioning of most used genomics annotation workbench and to develop an original approach that has resulted in a functional and published prototype.
Following my doctorate, I joined as postdoc fellow a team involved in the development of a genomic data warehouse, thus extending my fields of expertise to data integration of ill-defined and heterogeneous genomic knowledge.
The evolution of the profession in Pasteur has led me to focus my efforts more particularly on the analysis of genomic data. Since then, I have been working more and more closely in Biology at the frontiers of computer methodology and bioanalysis.
For the past ten years or so, I have also been very involved in university teaching and training organization within the Pasteur’s Central Teaching Committee.
