I am a Research Director at Inria , the French Research Institute of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, where I lead the EPIONE project-team dedicated to e-Patients for e-Medicine.

My current research interests are in biomedical image analysis and simulation. This includes the analysis of medical and biological images with advanced geometrical, statistical, physical and functional models, the simulation of physiological systems with computational models built from biomedical images and other signals, and the application of these tools to medicine and biology to better assist prevention, diagnosis and therapy of diseases.
