I currently lead a computational biology group at the Babraham Institute.

I studied molecular biology and biochemistry at École Normale Supérieure, evolution at University Paris XI, biophysics and pharmacology at Paris VI. After a PhD thesis on the structure and function of neuronal nicotinic receptors with Jean-Pierre Changeux at the Pasteur Institute, that comprised experimental and bioinformatics analyses, I pursued a post-doctoral training in modelling bacterial chemotaxis with Dennis Bray at the University of Cambridge (UK). At that time, I had the priviledge to participate to the development of what was becoming a new field in life sciences, Systems Biology. During my time at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), an outstation of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), I developed software tools and standards for Computational Systems Biology, such as BioModels, and studied the molecular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity.

I am also directeur de recherche at the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) currently on leave.
