Forthcoming events :


The second workshop on "Bayesian Methods for the Social Sciences", co-organised by the French institute of Mathematics for Planet Earth (iMPT), will take place on 16-18 Oct. 2024 at the University of Amsterdam: more here.

Special issue on "Celebrating Alison Etheridge's contribution to mathematical population genetics" in Theoretical Population Biology (publication in progress).


Open science :

The SMAI & EDP Sciences journals in applied maths published in open access under a collaborative publication model without author publication charges : more here, or in this article by CNRS Mathematics.

Among these journals, ESAIM: Probability & Statistics publishes original research and survey papers in the area of probability and statistics. It covers theoretical and practical aspects and, in particular, methodological developments with application in other scientific areas are more than welcome. Submit your work there!

Mathematics and modelling at the interface with life, human and earth sciences :

Mathematical Modelling and Biodiversity: a chair program involving Ecole Polytechnique, Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Veolia Environnement and Fondation X (website in French).

Institute of Mathematics for Planet Earth: a national institute to foster collaborations at the interface between mathematics and earth, life and human sciences (website in French).

Coordinated Action "Modelling of infectious diseases" of ANRS - MIE: a research network on the modelling of the dynamics of infectious diseases.

Thematic network "Mathematics, Health, Life Sciences": a research network on mathematics for medical and life sciences supported by CNRS (website in French).

MODCOV19: a website on French modelling actions in response to the Covid-19 sanitary crisis (in French).


Research Interests

I work on stochastic processes, all of them being more or less linked to population and transmission models:

  • Exchangeable coalescents and coalescing Lévy processes,

  • Spatial population genetics models (spatial Lambda-Fleming-Viot process in particular),

  • Statistical aspects (inference, in particular) of these models,

  • Measure-valued stochastic population models with various applications in biology, chemistry, ...

  • Models of resource sharing in communication networks.
