As a mathematician, my field is Algebraic Geometry with a special interest in the geometry of algebraic surfaces.

I am one of the coordinators of the dual-degree Bachelor in Mathematics and in Economy and one of the coordinators of the Master in Mathematics delivered by the Universities of Nantes and Angers.
