My main activity takes place in the Laboratory of Pathogen Discovery lead by Marc Eloit (80% of my work time). My main task in this team is to develop strategies to identify, in their metagenomics samples, new pathogens, or new combination pathogen / symptoms. The rest of my time, I manage small projects and participate to the Hub life. I am currently experimenting with functional programming (for now, using Python) and its applicability to bioinformatics issues.
Since I joined the Bioinformatics Hub in 2016 (after a curriculum widely dedicated to Bioinformatics studies), I am involved in projects dealing with sequences homology: alignments, HMM profiles, making homologous family databases, kmers signatures. I am also a developer (Python / C++) with a solid interest in optimization as well as in developing usable tools for final user such as automated pipeline for metagenomics sequence analysis.
