I graduated from the Université de Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2003 (in the Department of Mathematics which is now part of the EPFL).

Then, I went to the University of Georgia (UGA), in Athens, GA, USA, and was then employed as a postdoctoral associate and part-time instructor until 2006.

I came back to Europe after this experience, and enjoyed the Scottish climate at the University of Aberdeen until January 2008, as an advanced research fellow of the Swiss National Foundation.

In

In June 2010, together with Jon Carlson, Radu Stancu and Donna
Testerman, we organised the
conference Group Representation Theory and
Related Topics in Lausanne. It was on honour of the 60th
birthday of Prof. Jacques
Thévenaz. In addition, please find
here the handout version of my oral contribution to the
conference.

At the end of this meeting, two short-courses for
the Doctoral School
of the EPFL took place, and I had the pleasure to give one of them. The
lecture notes are available in pdf and
in dvi.

On 17th April 2013 and on 3rd April 2014, on the campus of Lancaster University, I organised the Florence Nightingale Day , as a one-day event to promote mathematics and statistics and especially the participation of women in those subjects. The next such event is scheduled for the 18th December 2014.
