Curriculum Vitae



Software Development engineer (Bioinformatics)

CNRS UMR 5175, Center of Functional Ecology and Evolution, Montpellier

I develop softwares for the analysis and visualization of data from high-throughput DNA sequencing (genomics, metagenomics, environmental DNA). I also ensure technology watch to implement new data processing methods and optimize scientific reproducibility.

Bioinformatics engineer internship

INSERM UMR S598, Genetics of Diabetes, Paris

I developed and integrated a functionnality and its graphical interface to a medical software. It aims to detect and annotate rare genetic variants related to diabetes on human genome sequence data.

Genbar 2
I programmed a software to identify genetic boundaries between populations from individual spatial coordinates and genetic variants data.
(C, C++, htslib)

From may 2019 to february 2020
I programmed several workflow to process metabarcoding environmental DNA data from MONACO MARINE WORLDWIDE EXPEDITION.
(obitools, vsearch, swarm, cutadapt, bash, python, singularity, snakemake)

From january 2019 to present WIP
Benchmarking of metabarcoding workflows
I did a modularized workflow in order to process metabarcoding data with different combination of softwares. Then we designed the workflow with the best performances.
(obitools, vsearch, cutadapt, bash, python, singularity, Univa Grid Engine)

From march 2018 to present WIP
Population genomics
I genotyped 1200 individuals belonging to 3 fish species. I worked with restriction enzyme-based data such as RAD-seq.
(illumina paired-end, STACKS, vcftools, bedtools, bwa, python, snakemake, singularity, Univa Grid Engine, bash)

From june 2017 to october 2019
Beets genome metrics
I calculated metrics (nucleotide diversity, Tajima's D) on the beets genome from 14,409 random single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) among 299 accessions of cultivated beets.
(R, python, genpop)

From may 2017 to may 2018
First Global Map of Fish Genetic Diversity
I built a database containing over 50,000 DNA sequences representing 3,815 species of marine fish and 1,611 species of freshwater fish. I estimated the average genetic diversity at different geographical scales.
(julia, python, R, singularity, MUSCLE, UGENE, geonames, BOLD, shiny)

From may 2017 to february 2020
Landscape genomics
I processed low-coverage RAD-seq data from 1800 individuals belonging to 2 fish species collected from all over the Mediterranean sea.
(dDocent, freebayes, vcftools, samtools, trimmomatic, bash, python, singularity, snakemake)

From february 2017 to march 2021
Genome assembly
I did the sequencing and assembly of 3 new fish species nuclear and mitochondrial genomes.
(illumina paired-end, mate-pair, 10X genomics chromium, Abyss, Platanus, QUAST, SLURM, bash)

From january 2017 to novembrer 2019
Report bad quality region of coding sequences from genome sequencing data
I developped a software able to detect human genomic variations with low coverage. Graphical Interface.
(Illumina paired-end, samtools, bedtools, variation annotation, python, mySQL, qt4)

From january 2016 to july 2016
Optimization of a method of fold recognition in protein structure
I added a new algorithm to predict 3D-modelisation of protein structure at atomic resolution
(PDB, pymol, C, C++, python, R, html, css )
