I am professor at the Mathematics department of Nantes University, in charge of the research team geometry and global analysis at the Jean Leray Lab (CNRS UMR 6629). I was head of department from 2014 to 2017 and I was holding of a Chaire d'Excellence (ANR 2008-2012). I am currently a member of the ANR EMARKS research project.

My research deals with differential geometry, gauge theory, symplectic, contact topology and Kähler geometry. For further details, you can consult my vitæ.

**Working seminar:** in 2018-2019, the working seminar of our research team shall focus on the third Hilbert problem.

**Numerical analysis:**
Discrete symplectic geometry is still in its early stages. I am working on existence of piecewise linear Lagrangian and, more generally, isotropic submanifolds of the Euclidean space.
I wrote a program with my collaborators François Jauberteau and Samuel Tapie,
which flows discrete surfaces of $ \mathbb{R}^ 4$ towards discrete Lagrangian surfaces.
The program is available on the page below:

**Talks:**

- May 1st 2018: Stony Brook geometry seminar.
- Mar 2nd-3rd 2018: Speaking at the Shanks workshop in complex differential geometry in Nashville.
- Feb 2nd 2018: Speaking at the Geometry and topology CIRGET seminar on discrete geometry and isotropic surfaces (slides).
