I am a Computational Systems Biologist specialized in microbiome modeling and analysis.
I currently hold a position as a Research/Data Scientist at Integrative Phenomics, a small French R&D company that provides microbiome-based nutritional recommendations. I work on the Metabolic Modeling of gut microbial communities, trying to understand and predict how they react to a change of diet through the combination of clinical and real-life data.
Before that, I worked on Microbial Ecology as a Postdoc in the COMBI team at the Laboratory of Digital Sciences of Nantes (LS2N, CNRS UMR 6004). My work mostly revolved around Metagenomics, NGS data analysis, and Metabolic Modeling of microbial communities in the global ocean, using data acquired during the Tara Oceans expeditions. During my Ph.D. thesis, I was a Research and Teaching Assistant at Inria & Université Grenoble Alpes. I worked on microbial growth laws of resource allocation in changing environments using a combination of Control Theory and Synthetic Biology. Finally, I also worked on Theoretical Physics (Goldstein lab, University of Cambridge, UK) and Eco-Evolutionary Mathematics (with Silvia de Monte, Ecole Normale Supérieure, FR) during multiple internships.
Overall, my scientific interests include maths, biology, and computer sciences. Apart from science, my favorite Linux distribution is Debian Sid and my favorite keyboard layout is BÉPO. I read fantasy novels (Markus Heitz, Robin Hobb, Andrzej Sapkowski, …) and watch videos about economics (Heureka). I am a free software and data privacy advocate and support organizations like [π] La Quadrature du Net. I like rock climbing and bouldering which I practice around Nantes (it’s where I live!).
