Short CV

I studied Mathematics at the University of Geneva, where I obtained my Master in 1998 and my PhD in 2002 under the supervision of Claude Weber. In 1999, I also spent one semester at Brandeis University with Jerry Levine. After two consecutive Postdoctoral Fellowships of the Swiss NSF, I was Heinz Hopf Lecturer at the ETH Zurich for three years.
Since September 2010, I am Maitre d'Enseignement et de Recherche (Senior Lecturer) at the University of Geneva.

Research Interests

My research interests are mainly in low-dimensional topology and mathematical physics.
More precisely, I have been investigating invariants of knots and links in all their forms, with a special interest in classical invariants such as the Alexander polynomial and the Levine-Tristram signature. My research has then shifted towards the application of these topological techniques to the understanding of models in statistical physics, such as the dimer and Ising models.
