Anne Siegel is a research director at CNRS since 2010 and works at the Institut de recherche en informatique et systèmes aléatoires in the Bioinformatics Dyliss Group. She is a former student of ENS Lyon, laureate of the agrégation of mathematics, and she obtained her phD in mathematics at the University of Aix-Marseille in 2000. She joined IRISA as a CNRS junior researcher (2002). From 2012 to 2019, she was the leader of the Dyliss team (bioinformatics, systems biology) in the lab. She served in different national committees (comité national du CNRS, inria evaluation committee) and was also involved in gender equality actions. Since 2019, she is the head of the department “Data and knowledge management”. Her research activities were first focused on the interface between mathematics and computer science, through the study of symbolic dynamical systems in different application fields. She then re-oriented her research towards interfaces between biology and computer sciences, by developing symbolic methods for knowledge representation and integration, in order to analyse large-scale biological systems.
