I study the existence and/or the uniqueness of closed convex hypersurfaces of the Euclidean space with certain properties, usually by looking at the geometric properties of solutions to appropriate partial differential equations. I am also interested in curvature flows and isoperimetric-type inequalities. One of my current projects focuses on affine invariants of convex bodies and affine invariant inequalities.

Whether a Master's or a PhD, my students' theses combine techniques from differential geometry, analysis and partial differential equations.

*A selection of my recent or up-coming courses:

- Interview with Michèle Vergne in
1974 (In French)

- And from the local folklore:

A few years back, my suggestion to shorten a calculus exam was answered by a male colleague with "you must have a lots of domestic duties and not enough time for grading". A male faculty member is said to have a high research grant, if that is the case, but a female's high funding is called a "generous grant". Honi soit qui mal y pense!
