I received my PhD from the Nice Sophia Antipolis University in March 1997, with a thesis on Control models in fisheries (in French), prepared in the COMORE team (currently BIOCORE), INRIA Sophia Antipolis, France. It was followed by post-doctoral positions in the fisheries field at: Laboratoire MAERHA (currently EMH), IFREMER Nantes, France (1997); Systems Analysis Laboratory, Helsinki University of Technology, Finland (1997); Institut de Ciències del Mar, CSIC Barcelona, Spain (1998-1999).

In January 2000, I was recruited as a researcher at INRA, in the Applied Mathematics and Informatics (currently MaIAGE) research unit located in Jouy-en-Josas, France, to work in animal epidemiology.

In November 2012, I was transferred to my request to the Sophia Agrobiotech Institute, with permission to perform my research in the joint INRIA-INRA-UPMC/CNRS BIOCORE research team in Sophia Antipolis. I am still part of the Applied Mathematics and Informatics division at INRA.
