obtained my PhD in theoretical physics at the university of Paris VI
in 1996, under the supervision of M. Mézard. The subject of the
thesis was the out-of-equilibrium dynamics of spin glasses. I then
spent two years at the Abdus Salam ICTP in Trieste,
Italy, as a postdoctoral fellow. In 1998, I entered the National
Council for Scientific Research (CNRS) of France with a permanent
position as junior researcher. I spent 10 years at the
Laboratoire de Physique Théorique at the University of
Paris-Sud. I am currently CNRS senior researcher
at the Centre de Physique Théorique in Marseille.
I am also research scientist
at the Institute for Scientific Interchange in
Since April 2014, I am also vice-president treasurer of the
Complex Systems Society.
