  1. The Wowchemy website builder for Hugo, along with its starter templates, is designed for professional creators, educators, and teams/organizations - although it can be used to create any kind of site
  2. The template can be modified and customised to suit your needs. It’s a good platform for anyone looking to take control of their data and online identity whilst having the convenience to start off with a no-code solution (write in Markdown and customize with YAML parameters) and having flexibility to later add even deeper personalization with HTML and CSS
  3. You can work with all your favourite tools and apps with hundreds of plugins and integrations to speed up your workflows, interact with your readers, and much more

The template is mobile first with a responsive design to ensure that your site looks stunning on every device.

CNRS Researcher in Computer Science

I am a CNRS researcher in theoretical computer science at IRIF, Université Paris Cité. Previously, I have been a Short-Term Fellow at CRI Paris in spring and summer of 2020, working on the development of tracelet-analysis algorithms for the biochemistry platform Kappa and for the organo-chemistry platform MØD. I previously held a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship (2017-2019), working in the field of theoretical computer science at IRIF, Université Paris Diderot. The aim of my project with Jean Krivine (IRIF) consisted in developing extensions of my rule-algebraic framework to restricted variants of rewriting and to the biochemical reaction language Kappa. I am also frequently to be found at the LPTMC of the UPMC/Sorbonne/Paris 06, working with Gérard H.E. Duchamp (Paris 13) and Karol A. Penson (Paris 6) on topics in combinatorics. My previous positions include a Postdoc position with Vincent Danos at ENS Paris and at University of Edinburgh (2014-2017) and a Postdoc position in mathematical physics with Anatoly Konechny at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh (2011-2014).
