I am maître de conférences (associate professor) in the University Paris-Sud XI. I am a member of the team of Topology and Dynamics of the laboratory of mathematics of Orsay.

My area of research is dynamical systems in discrete time (given by iterating a map from a space into itself), mainly in dimension 1. Main topics: maps of topological graphs, interval maps, rotation set, coding, symbolic dynamics, topological Markov chains, entropy, measures of maximal entropy.

Here is a (quite old) summary of my work (a more recent one is available in French).

My Erdös number is 3 through Bernard Host and Vitaly Bergelson.

This academic year (2017-2018), I give lectures and tutorials in geometry in year 0 (transition year between high school and first year studies for students with a non scientific high school diploma), and lectures and tutorials in differential equations for third-year students in biology. At the second semester, I will have a sabbatical semester (délégation CNRS).
