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 email 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).

Nov 5, 2022  Together with Mirna Džamonja, on Thursday, November 17th 2022 we are organizing a oneday workshop DaLFI : Duality and Logic in the passage from the Finite to the Infinite. The workshop takes place from 9:3016:30 in room 1007 at the Sophie Germain building in Paris. More details are here. 

Aug 18, 2022  A summer filled with interesting and inspiring meetings: first TACL: Topology, Algebra, and Categories in Logic, then Highlights and the ICALP workshop “Structure meets power” (my slides), and then Lean for the curious mathematician 2022. 
Jun 23, 2022  A new website, updating my prof. dr. style. I did keep the old version alive for archiving purposes.
