Research Interests

Computer Algebra is my main research interest. Specifically, my work is at the interface between computer algebra and the analysis of algorithms and combinatorial models: combinatorics provides me with problems whose resolution motivates the development of new algorithms; conversely, algorithmic advances of computer algebra makes it possible to prove combinatorial results automatically, and to obtain new ones. Besides, algorithms developped in this way turn out to have far-reaching applications in computer algebra.

When I do not work in the INRIA Centre at Rocquencourt, I do part of my research at the MSR-INRIA Joint Centre. In fact, I am about to leave I have left (Oct. 2012) from the center at Rocquencourt to the INRIA-Saclay Center (building Alan Turing on École polytechnique campus, Palaiseau).

Interns and Students I've Advised

Teaching Activities

I teach a yearly course in computer algebra in the MPRI. See the (French) web page about my (joint) course there.

I have also tought 8 years at École polytechnique, including a Computer-Algebra course (M1 level).

Other Links

From October 1998 to February 1999, I was a post-doctoral fellow visiting the Combinatorics group at RISC, Linz (Autria). I still have a lot of connections with RISC; in particular, many of the students and researchers come and visit us, and some do a post-doc with us.
