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.
