Complete CV



My research activity is organized around the following main lines: axiomatic analysis of solutions for cooperative games and their applications; design of efficient algorithms in strategic games arising from combinatorial problems; power indices and related social choice problems; bioinformatics and statistical analysis of biological data of human RNA.

Scientific management

I am Deputy Director (Directeur adjoint) of the LAMSADE laboratory (UMR7243) - Since November 2019.


I am also co-coordinator of the scientific projects at LAMSADE Games and social choice: axiomatic and algorithmic aspects.
