I received my PhD in Physics from the Ecole normale superieure. I am broadly interested in the statistical physics of biological function. My fascination for how function can emerge from the collective dynamics of  a large number of specialized cells has led me to focus much of my research on immune defense, which has been a great model system to think about this question. In my work I am building towards quantitative theories, which give insight into cellular mechanisms of regulation and link them to computational properties at the population scale.
