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 pioneer with the citizen science video game Phylo DNA Puzzles and more recently with the DNA Puzzles project.
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 a faculty member.
