I work with a number of scientists at different institutions. Recent collaborators include:

Sebastian Ahnert is a physicist working on statistical physics in biology and quantum information. He studied physics at Cambridge for his B.A. (Sydney Sussex) and Ph.D. (Theory of Condensed Matter). He did a postdoc with me at the Curie Institute in 2006 and is now a Leverhulme Fellow in TCM, Cambridge.

Francis Brown studied mathematics at Cambridge (B.A.) and Ecole Normale Superieure (Ph.D.). He is a recent Charge de Recherche in the CNRS at Jussieu/Chevaleret. His research interests include algebraic number theory, Feynman integrals, pattern detection and biologically inspired combinatorics.

Guido Caldarelli is an associate professor of physics at INFM-CNR. Guido did a postdoc with Robin Ball in the Theory of Condensed Matter group in Cambridge, which is where I met him. He is mainly interested in scale-free and complex networks.

Jonathan Coe is a physicist doing a postdoc with me at the Curie Institute within the DARPA Fundamental Laws of Biology program. He studied at Oxford (Mansfield) and Cambridge (Theory of Condensed Matter) with Mike Cates and Yong Mao, before working in the Evolutionary Biology group at Edinburgh.

Andrei Zinovyev was a postdoc at Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques in Paris and is now part of the Systems Biology Group at the Curie Institute. He is interested in sequence analysis, biological modelling and dimension reduction in complex systems.

Olivier Pourquie is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research. The goal of his lab is a better understanding of the segmentation process in vertebrates, particularly the segmentation clock. He was previously in Marseille and Paris in the CNRS.

Karen Willbrand did her Ph.D. at Ecole Normale Superieure, supervised by Jean-Pierre Nadal and me, on statistical mechanics methods of identifying genes and gene-gene interactions. She is now a postdoc at the Weizmann Institute.
