I am currently a post-doc in Tobias Marshall's team. I did my thesis in the BONSAI team, I was supervised by Rayan Chikhi and Jean Stéphane Varré.

My work focuses on long reads correction and their use for variants detection, de novo genomes assembly, construction and analysis of pangenomes.


  • KNOT: for Knowledge Network Overlap exTraction a pipeline to investigate fragmented long-read assembly
  • yacrd: for Yet Another Chimeric Read Detector: using all-against-all read mapping for chimeric read detection and read scrubbing
  • fpa: for Filter Pairwise Alignment: filter all-against-all read mapping, by type, length, name… fpa can convert alignment in overlap graph (GFA1), index and rename reads
  • ragroc: for Random dnA Generator and Reverse COmplement: a webpage write in webassembly to generate random dna and run reverse complement
  • niffler: is a rust crate to provide simple and transparent support for compressed files
