Additional Information


I co-supervised (50% with Olivier Roux) master student Emna Ben Abdallah on the following subject: Implementation of biological networks analysis tools with logic programming in ASP.

I gave lessons and practicals at the École Centrale de Nantes, at the IUT de Nice and at the Faculté des Sciences de Nantes. I mainly teach:

I also co-supervised (33% to 50%) several projects of 3rd year engineering students (bac+5) in computer science.
