Current position: Lecturer in Pure Mathematics.
I graduated from the Université de Lausanne, Switzerland, in
2003 (in the Department of Mathematics which is now part of
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 Spring 2008, I briefly went back to the United States, in
California, for a 5-months research programme at the MSRI, in Berkeley.
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
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
Since 17th April 2013, on the campus of Lancaster University, I organise
Florence Nightingale Day each year. This is a one-day event to
promote mathematics and statistics and especially the participation
of women in those subjects.
