Welcome to Marseille
I hold an associate professor position at the Aix-marseille University where I give courses in statistics for graduate and undergraduate students in life & earth sciences.
I work at the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanology, part of the Pytheas Institute. I'm interested in theoretical ecology and applied statistics in the field of marine sciences. My research activities are essentially driven by two main topics. The first one concerns the characterization of the relationships between marine living organisms and their environment. The second point concerns the very nature of the data : many of them arrive as curves. I try to develop graphical and statistical methods that include this property. I am especially interested in data analysis when data are curves (FDA), in multivariate data analysis and related classification topics, dimension reduction methods in general and approximation & smoothing methods.
