I conduct research in computational molecular biology with a particular interest on RNA structural bioinformatics and cheminformatics. I also develop applications of crowdsourcing and human-computing techniques to bioinformatics, a field of research I contributed to pionneer with the citizen science video game Phylo DNA Puzzles.
I received a PhD in Computer Science from École Polytechnnique (France) in 2004 under the mentorship of Jean-Marc Steyaert. From 2005 to 2006, I was a post-doctoral researcher in the group of Peter Clote at Boston College, and in 2006 I moved to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where I was an instructor in applied mathematics under the mentorship of Bonnie Berger. In 2009, I joined the School of Computer Science at McGill University as faculty member.
You can learn more about my research on my laboratory website. If you want to join the lab, you can find more information about how to apply for a position in my group on my research website. We do currently have several open PhD student positions.
