Biographical: I obtained my PhD from the University of Paris XI (Orsay) in 1997. I previously held academic positions at Cambridge University, Melbourne University, The Institute of Statistical Mathematics in Tokyo and the University of British Columbia where I was a Canada Research Chair in Stochastic Computation.

Research interests
Bayesian statistics; Stochastic Simulation; Sequential Monte Carlo; Markov Chain Monte Carlo; Time Series.
I am primarily interested in the development and study of novel Monte Carlo methods for inference in complex stochastic models.
