• CNRS researcher (tenure position CRCN)
  • Elected Member and Scientific secretary at CoNRS (Comité National de la Recherche Scientifique / CNRS Scientific Board), Section 6 (computer science)
  • Head of the CNRS network on Quantum Computing GT IQ (Groupe de Travail Informatique Quantique). GT IQ is part of the CNRS GdR IM (Groupe de Recherche en Informatique Mathématique)
  • Board of the CNRS network on Quantum Engineering (GdR IQFA).


Since 2009, I am a `Chargé de Recherche’ (junior researcher, tenure position) at CNRS (INS2Isection 6). From 2009 to 2013, I worked at the Laboratoire d’Informatique de Grenoble (LIG) in the CAPP team. I moved to the CARTE team in LORIA in Sept 2013. I obtained my PhD from Laboratoire Leibniz, Grenoble-INP, and my M.Sc from Université Joseph Fourier. I am a former student of Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan and of ENSIMAG.

I am interested in Quantum Computing (QC) and more precisely in the Foundational Structures for Quantum Information and Computation. I am working on

  • Models of QC (measurement-based quantum computing, quantum Turing machines)
  • High level methods for QC (category theory, semantic techniques, abstract interpretation, typing system)
  • Graph theory and QC connections (flow, local complementation, graph state)
  • Quantum cryptography (secret sharing)

I am responsible of the GT Informatique Quantique at the CNRS GdR Informatique Mathématique.

I am in the Board of the CNRS GdR Information Quantique, Fondements & Applications (IQFA), and responsible with Antoine Browaeys of its Quantum Simulation and Processing theme.

I am a member of the

          GT Informatique Quantique;
          GT Geocal
