I am currently Research Faculty (Chargé de Recherche) at Inserm Bordeaux Population Health research center U1219, and my research activities are fostered by the SISTM team from both INRIA and INSERM institutes.
Broadly speaking, my main research focus is on the longitudinal analysis of high-dimensional biomedical data. My latest projects include gene set analysis of longitudinal gene expression, statistical processing of (longitudinal) flow-cytometry data through Bayesian nonparametric modeling and Optimal Transport, probabilistic analysis of high-dimensional data from Electronic Health Records, and methods development for multi-omics integrative analysis.
Until 2021, I was tenured associate professor (Maître de Conférences) at the Bordeaux School of Public Health from the University of Bordeaux. Before that I did a postdoc with Tianxi Cai at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston. Before that I did my Ph.D. in Public Health - Biostatistics at ISPED in Bordeaux, France, under the supervision of François Caron and Rodolphe Thiébaut. I graduated from the ENSAI (National School for Statistics and Information Analysis — part of the very French Grandes Écoles system) in 2011, where I majored in Biostatistics.

After a bumpy road, along which I kept in mind Jeff Leak’s own worst (recent) experience, we finally got our article on Time-Course Gene Set Analysis for Longitudinal Gene Expression Data published in PLoS Computational Biology, a very nice journal ! I am really happy about it, don’t hesitate to check it out ! And there is the TcGSA R package that goes with it.
