I am research director at CNRS, leader of the Tyrex research team on data-centric programming at LIG and Inria. I am also co-responsible for the PhD program in Computer Science at the University Grenoble-Alpes (ED MSTII), and member of the board at LIG. I received a Ph.D in Computer Science in 2006 and an HDR in 2014.

Before that, I was a researcher at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (post-doc in 2007 and invited researcher in 2012), research officer at IBM Research headquarters (2004-2005), founder of a small software company in the field of image editing (1997-2001), and science & technology advisor for a few startups (2001-2010). I received several scientific prizes including a CNRS Bronze Medal.

Highlight: see our SIGMOD 2020 paper on extending the relational algebra for optimizing recursive queries, with an application to graph queries. More works are ongoing in the CLEAR project, and we have some opportunities to join.
