Staff research associate - Saez-Rodriguez research group

I studied Physics at the Université du Littoral, France (1994-1998) and Astronomy at the Université de Nice-Sophia-Antipolis, France (1998-1999). I id my PhD at the Observatoire de Nice-Côte d'Azur (1999-2003) within the VIRGO project. Then, I moved to Wales, U.K., to work at the Physics and Astronomy Department of Cardiff University as a Research Associate (2003-2008). I was involved in the Data Analysis Group of LIGO, an American project in astronomy. In 2008, I moved to Montpellier, France to work in Plant Science at the French National Institute of Computer Science, INRIA and Agricultural Research for Development, CIRAD. In articular, I worked on OpenAlea, an open source project dedicated to plant modelisation. Since August 2011, I am a Research Scientist/Bioinformatician at EMBL-EBI. I am interested in computer science as a tool to develop software and algorithms to solve scientific problems. More about me on my home page.
