Personal profile

Research Interests

Foundational approaches to quantitative biology; syntaxes for representing, modelling, and understanding large protein networks; concurrent and stochastic systems.


1998 Habilitation a diriger des Recherches, Universite Paris-Diderot
1990 Doctorat de Mathematiques, Universite Paris-Diderot
1985 Diplome d'Ingenieur de l'Ecole Polytechnique


I am Directeur de Recherches at CNRS, Chair of Computational Systems Biology at the University of Edinburgh (under the SICSA funding scheme). I was Director of Synthsys the Centre for Synthetic and Systems Biology at Edinburgh in 2012-2013; an external faculty member of the Santa Fe Institute (2007-2009), and a visiting Professor at the Harvard Medical School (2006-2009).

I work on clean and scaleable domain-specific modeling/programming languages, mostly, but not only, for systems and synthetic biology. I am taking part in cross-disciplinary activities meeting on algorithmic/mathematical structures for modelling (social systems, economical systems, climate, multi-scale plant growth, etc) with the Edinburgh Multidisciplinary Multiscale Modelling initiative.
