Since 2016, I am researcher (CR2) inria at the
Bordeaux Sud-Ouest Center, in the team
(common with Inserm
I got a PhD in Public Health option Biostatistics at the University of Bordeaux in 2013 on the «monitoring of patients infected with HIV». Before that, I‘m a engineer in statistics from ENSAI and have a master degree in mathematical statistics and econometrics. Following my thesis, I conducted a short postdoctoral stay at the University of Oslo (Norway), then I was a postdoctoral fellow for 2 1/2 years at Harvard School of Public Health (Boston, USA).
My research focuses on the development of statistical methods for treatment and prevention of infectious diseases. I draw motivation for the methods from example in sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV. The methods we develop are generic in the sense that they can be applied to other fields than medicine and various medical concerns. During my PhD, I specialized in mechanistic modeling based on Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) then during my postdoctoral positions we proposed methods to inference a treatment or intervention effect based on causality theory using semi-parametric statistics. In both experiences, once the statistical problem has been modeled, we focus on optimization, to say the treatment delivery and personalization based on control theory and the design or analysis of intervention trials using network sciences.
