I am a permanent researcher within the DataShape research group at INRIA Sophia AntipolisMéditerranée, France.
My research interests are in Computational Geometry and Topology, with a focus on:
 Persistent Homology: algorithms, discrete Morse theory, application to geometry and topology.
 LowDimensional Topology: quantum invariants & categorification, combinatorial and computational complexity, normal surface theory, connections with geometry.
I am one of the main creators of the C++ software library GUDHI for Topological Data Analysis; see the Software tab for more details and other coding projects.
I received my PhD in 2014 from the University of Nice and INRIA Sophia AntipolisMéditerranée, under the supervision of JeanDaniel Boissonnat. I worked from 2014 to 2017 as postdoctoral fellow within the School of Mathematics and Physics of the University of Queensland, in collaboration with Ben Burton. I started my current position at INRIA in 2018.
I received the Gilles Kahn PhD award in 2015, and an ESA best paper award in 2012.
Current:
 PI of the ANR JCJC grant AlgoKnot (20212024).
 Lecturer at MPRI (2018).
 PhD student: Owen Rouillé (2018).
 Postdoctoral Fellow: Kristóf Huszár (2020).
 Graduate student: Isaac Ren (2021).
