Cyril joined the SDSC in 2022. He holds a Ph.D. in computational biology from Sorbonne University and the Institut Pasteur in Paris. There, he developed tools to detect changes in the 3D conformation of chromosomes and analyzed how it is altered during infection by bacterial pathogens. Before that, he received an MSc. in Bioinformatics from the University of Lausanne, where he worked on evolutionary genomics in insects. Over time, Cyril developed a strong interest in open and transparent scientific research. He is eager to promote good software and data management practice in research.
