Welcome to my website! I teach and do research in mathematics and the foundations of computer science.

Research. I am broadly interested in interactions of algebra, topology, categories, and logic. More…

Teaching. In my role as maître de conférences at the UFR informatique, I teach math and CS courses to students at various levels. More…

Writing. Together with Mai Gehrke, I am writing a textbook on topological duality theory for distributive lattice based algebraic structures. I have published several articles about my research. More…

Get in touch. Feel free to send me an e-mail if anything you find here piques your interest. I am always happy to talk about these things, create new collaborations, and I often advise graduate research projects (“stage de M2” in France).
