I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of Lausanne and vice director of the Laboratoire de Recherche en Neuroimagerie (LREN) of Departement des Neurosciences Cliniques (DNC) at the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV). I obtained my PhD in neuroscience at the university Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris. I was research fellow at MRC-CBSU in Cambridge and then at the Welcome center for neuroimaging in London before my arrival in Lausanne in 2010. I am coordinating and directing the work of the various components of the medical informatics platform of the Human Brain Project. The aims are to create a facility for medical ICT, federate very large volumes of data from European hospitals about diseases of the brain (imaging, data from tissue and blood samples, clinical data, medical histories, genomic data, etc.) and finally use this data to discover biological signatures of diseases. I have several years of experience in multidisciplinary research with deep knowledge and expertise in two key domains mathematical/statistical modelling and in neuroscience/psychology. He used functional imaging to probe cognitive function and used my mathematical background to test new hypotheses pertaining the explanation of individual differences.
