5 Short Vita:

Jérémy received a BSc in Mathematics in 1997 in Rouen, a Master in 1998 and a PhD in 2002, both in Computer Science in Orsay. He was a posdoctoral fellow at the university of British Columbia until 2004 and an assistant professor at the university of Waterloo until 2008. He is now assistant professor at the university of Chile.

Jérémy's main research is about the analysis of algorithms and data-structures on finer classes of instances than those merely defined by their size, which yields to adaptive algorithms, instance optimality, output sensitive and parameterized complexity, compressed data structures and indexes, with formal measures of compressibility.

Jérémy experiments as part of his teaching with new techniques (e.g. organisation of two yearly android programming contests, creation of project oriented courses using http://www.alice.org, usage of concept questions in more traditional courses, course where university students teach high-school students) and designs tools to help instructors to share and evaluate collectively teaching material over time (database of solved problem still in use at the University of Waterloo), and between institutions (project in development: http://www.repositorium.cl, https://github.com/jyby/repositorium/).

Jérémy was born in 1976. So far he has lived in France, United States, Canada and Chile. He speaks native French, is fluent in English and in Spanish. He plays music (e.g. clarinette, xaphoon, bandoneon, piano,… ), practices sports (e.g. swimming, roller blading and unicycling) and art (etching glasses, copper and wood), and loves cooking and taking pictures.
