Since September 2021, I am associate professor (maître de conférences) in the Mocqua group of the Loria lab, at Inria center of Nancy and University of Lorraine.
I teach at the Faculty of science and technology of Nancy.

In 2019–2021, I was post-doc in the Cana group of the LIS lab, at University Aix-Marseille. More precisely, I worked in the Project FANs on automata networks.
I also taught at the Faculty of science of Marseille.

In 2018–2019, I was ATER (post-doc with teaching charge) in the Mc2 group of the Lip lab, at Ens Lyon.
I taught at the CS department.

In 2018–2017, I was a postdoc in the Laboratory of Theoretical Computer Science, at the Higher School of Economics.

Between 2014 and 2017, I prepared my PhD thesis under the supervision of Gwenaël Richomme in the Escape group of the Lirmm laboratory, at University of Montpellier.
I defended on 2017-06-30; here is my manuscript and here are my slides.
I also taught at the Faculty of science of Montpellier.


Here is a short summary of my research so far.

Find open-access or Arxiv links for all my papers in my DBLP entry.

Selected talks in no particular order (each title links to the slides):


I have internship subjects on tilings, automata/Boolean networks, and combinatorics on words. You can skim through the slides of my talks linked above to get a general idea on my subjects (there's no need to understand everything). Feel free to contact me if you're interested.

My lectures are in French and everything is on the faculty server (login required). For 2021/2022, I mostly teach networks, system programming, and databases.

I love links.

OpenBSD links

Official and semi-official sources:

The above links are often enough for everyday use (this specific post on the misc mailing-list was very helpful). Here are a few more links to blog posts and user-maintained pages.

Classic books about C and Unix

The rumors are true: those books are enlightening. Excellent cure to the “I've learned 10 programming languages and I don't know where to go next” disease.

Classic books about Common Lisp and Lisp

Because metaprogramming is more fun than type systems.

Cool pages and sites about computers

If you haven't found anything interesting to read yet, you can try Dan Luu's list of programming blogs to consider reading or his programming book list.

Skepticism in the technology sector

Note: the authors of the following pages do not necessarily agree with one another, nor do they form a coherent movement. Me linking a page doesn't mean I agree with everything in the page, nor with everything the authors wrote elsewhere.

Langue française

Web development

Observe the trend from first to last:

I guess someone missed someone else's point. Oh well.
You might be interested in Roman Zolotarev's Static Site Generator: a simple shell script to compile a collection of Markdown files to HTML with minimal templating.
Alternatively, you might like Uriel's Werc, a dynamic web framework written in rc shell.
For the record, my website is hand-written HTML typed in vi(1) [no, not vim] and tested in w3m.
