Since January 2017, I am part of the Laboratoire Bordelais de Recherche en Informatique (LaBRI) in Bordeaux, France, as CNRS researcher.

I participate in the organisation of the Thematic Semester: Algebra and Words in Combinatorics to be held in Centre de recherche mathématiques (CRM) in Montréal from March to July 2017.

Research interests: Symbolic dynamics, combinatorics, discrete geometry, tilings, multidimensional continued fraction algorithms, ergodic theory, combinatorics on words.

Membership: I am member of the Canadian Mathematical Society and Société Mathématique de France.

I am involved in two research projects funded by the ANR:

  • Fractals and Numeration (FAN) Project
  • DynA3S project: Dynamique des algorithmes du pgcd : une approche Algorithmique, Analytique, Arithmétique et Symbolique

In Liège, I organized a weekly reading group on symbolic dynamics, combinatorics and automata theory.

I participated in the organisation of the following international events:

  • Sage Days 38, Centre de recherche mathématique (CRM), Montréal, Canada, May 7-11th 2012.
  • GasCOM 2010, The 7th edition Random Generation of Combinatorial Structures, Université du Québec à Montréal, Montréal, Canada, September 2-4th 2010.
  • Sage Days 20, third week of the thematic semester Towards new interactions between mathematics and computer science, Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM), Marseille, France, February 22-26 2010.
