Who am I?

A mathematician (Full Professor of mathematics)
Deputy Chair of the Department of Mathematics (DMATH)

What do I do?

Math and then write papers about what is discovered. This can be quite an adventure so luckily this is often done together with collaborators.

Organize, attend, participate in workshops, conferences and seminars. These are important venues to communicate research, share ideas and foster creativity.

You can hear more in the Main Element podcast.

Teaching and mentoring students is an important and rewarding part of our jobs. In additional to my teaching duties, I am
(Co)-creator and director of the Math Forge initiative
(Co)-creator and director of the Math Camp initiative

Outreach is vital, important and rewarding:
Together with Bruno Teheux, we were delighted to be able to showcase The Simplicity of Complexity and ReCreate at the Expo in Dubai. The FNR wrote a nice article about it.
In the ReShape project (part of Esch 2022) we collected over 20000 drawings and gave them to musicians who composed music based on them. Here are two of them: Music by Mike von der Nahmer and Music by Timelord.

Our current research group:

PhD students: Marie Abadie, David Fisac (co-tutelle with Florent Balacheff)
Post-docs: Alexey Balitsky, Mingkun Liu, Mélanie Theillière, Kate (Katie) Vokes.
