Research interests : text algorithms for bioinformatics and musicology
BioinformaticsI am a member of the Bonsai bioinformatics group (Pr. Hélène Touzet) at LIFL / INRIA Lille, mainly working on NGS algorithms.
- NGS algorithms and indexation, especialy for hematology and leukemia analysis, together with Mikaël Salson
- RNA patterns, RNA suboptimal structures, ncRNA discovery
- GPU/manycore high-performance computing in bioinformatics
Past research themes
- FPGA and reconfigurable computing (2004-2007)
- weigthed finite automata, epsilon-transitions (2004-2006)
- identification of the canine olfactive repertory (2004-2005)
Computer musicologyI am the head of the "Algorithmic musicology" exploratory action at LIFL/MIS. We focus on computational analysis of symbolic scores : given a music score (for example MIDI or .krn file), we aim to compute several analyses, ultimately studying the high-level structure of music. We try to propose models and methods that are both algorithmically efficient and musically pertinent.
- modeling and comparison of symbolic musical sequences: patterns, harmony, rhythms
- structure analysis : fugues, sonata forms...
Software and tools
- Vidjil, high-throughput V(D)J repertoire analysis
- Biomanycores (GPU and bioinformatics)
- At bioinfo.lifl.fr: Regliss (RNA locally optimal structures), ReBLOSUM (Rectangular BLOSUM matrices), TFM-CUDA (GPU PWM tools)
- At U. Bielefeld: ADP CUDA
- Azadeh Saffarian (RNA, indexation), with Hélène Touzet, defended in november 2011
- Tuan Tu Tran (GPU, manycores), with Jean-Stéphane Varré, defended in december 2012
- Nicolas Kagan-Defay (MIR, polyphony), with Vincent Villain, Florence Levé and Richard Groult (MIS), started in 2013
- Elected member of INRIA national Evaluation Comittee (2008-2011 and 2011-2014).
- Member (2008-2012) and scientific secretary (2009-2012) of Gilles Kahn PhD Award comittee.

Mathieu Giraud is a CNRS Associate Researcher in the Laboratoire d'Informatique Fondamentale de Lille (LIFL), the departement of Computer Science of the Université Lille 1, in France. He is also a member of the joint Bonsai project with the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique (INRIA). He serves as member of the INRIA national evaluation board.
He obtained a MS in École Normale Supérieure de Lyon in 2002, and a PhD from the University Rennes 1 in 2005. He worked on weighted automata and specialized architectures using FPGAs. His current research interests target text algorithms, bioinformatics, RNA bioinformatics, high-performance computing using GPUs and many-cores architectures, and computer musicology.
