I am full professor at the I2M of the Aix-Marseille Univ. (previously LATP and Université de Provence Aix-Marseille I). I graduated from the Mathematics Department of Trieste University before completing my Ph.D. at SISSA. After finishing my thesis under the supervision of B. Zimmermann, I spent one and a half years at the laboratoire E. Picard in Toulouse, with grants of Università di Trieste and CNR. From 1999 to 2008, I held a permanent position as maître de conférences at the Institut de Mathématiques de Bourgogne of Burgundy University. More personal details here.
