I am a mathematician with 25 years of experience in interdisciplinary work. I started my higher graduation with a PhD in applied mathematics in the field of in numerical methods for solving stiff ordinary differential equations. This PhD resulted with publication of papers in international scientific revues. During period 1995 to 2000 I was co-author of software package Arlequin, for statistical analysis of genetic data. Arlequin was a big success with more than 20’000 scientific paper using this software for their data analysis. Arlequin was also linked to academic research in statistical methods applied to population genetics. From 2000 to 2013 I started to work in the industry as responsible of R&D at company Deram SA. This company is active in the banking software. In 2013 I wrote IDCWeb, an interactive platform to monitor heat consumption in residential buildings created for the company ProEnova Sàrl. This tool is used for monitoring and reporting heat demand within the activity of “concessionaire en calcul d’IDC”. Since November 2014 I am back in academic research within the “Groupe Energie / Institut Forel” on the SCCER project “Future Energy Efficient Buildings and Districts - FEEB&D” hosted by the EMPA Switzerland.

My present research interests are (i) territorial modelling of heat demand, (ii) electricity consumption decomposition and load curve estimations, (iii) national scale energy system modelling to challenge the energy strategy 2050 goals.

Currently we are in collaboration with Martin Patel’s group launching phase II of SCCER FEEB&D project. This second four year phase (2017-2020) will reveal many interesting challenges.
