About me

Laurent in Le Modele Turing I received my PhD from the University of Aix-Marseille 1 (France) in April of 2008 under the supervision of Bruno Durand and Alexander Shen. I then spent a year at the Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand), working with Rod Downey, and another 8 months at the University of Heidelberg (Germany), working with Wolfgang Merkle. In 2009, I was hired by the CNRS as a Chargé de recherche and joined the Automata and Applications group at the LIAFA, University of Paris 7. During the year 2013-2014, I will be joining the CNRS lab J-V Poncelet in Moscow.

My main research interest is algorithmic randomness and Kolmogorov complexity, and its connections to computability theory and analysis (more in the Links section).
