Research interests

My research interests are mainly (but not restricted to) the following ones
Algorithms for processing read sequences from high-throughput sequencing technologies. More specifically, algorithms for RNA-Seq data, or for the analysis of lymphocyte clonality.
Searching microRNA targets (microRNAs are small non-protein coding RNAs, that have a regulatory role).
Dynamic compressed text indexes (suffix tree, suffix array, Burrows-Wheeler transform)
Range minimum query


Talks given


A platform for the analysis of lymphocyte populations based on their V(D)J recombination in high-throughput sequencing data. That platform is especially used in leukemia follow-up by several hospitals around the world.
A RNA-seq read analysis tool: for detecting splicing junctions (either alternative or not), fusion gene or transcripts, point mutations (substitutions, insertions, deletions).
A C++ library for indexing reads produced by high-throughput sequencers
A dynamic and compressed full-text index implementation

Conflicts of interest

I own the minimal number of shares of my cooperative bank. My research are exclusively funded by public funds. Within the Vidjil project, I also work with an engineer funded by the fondation EDF. I have signed a non-paid speaker contract with Novartis for a 2-day workshop in 2016 on onco-hematology with medical doctors from hospitals in the north of France. Novartis paid for a hotel room (one night) and for the meals (three).
