Short presentation


Assistant professor at University Rennes 1 since 2009 and Dyliss member since 2019. I am co-head of the Bioinformatics master, with my colleague Olivier Dameron. My research interests are focused on bioinformatics : modelling knowledge, integrating heterogeneous data and reasonning on molecular biological data and graphs.

Keywords : -omic data integration ; protein-protein interactions ; biological graphs ; applications for fundamental biology, environment and  health.
