I am full professor in computer engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland at the Yverdon site (HEIG-VD). I lead the Biomedical Applications Axis at the ICT department which belongs to the Health, Engineering and Economics (HEE) group. My research team, named Computational Intelligence for Computational Biology (CI4CB), is affiliated to the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB).
My central professional interest concerns the different interfaces between life and engineering sciences. This includes mostly biologically-inspired computational techniques on the one side and bioinformatics and computational biology on the other side.
