Mathieu Giraud

Mathieu Giraud, chercheur CNRS, conçoit des méthodes algorithmiques pour étudier les séquences. Il est membre de l'équipe de bioinformatique Bonsai, dans les centres de recherche CRIStAL (CNRS et Université de Lille) et Inria Lille. Menant depuis 10 ans des recherches sur l'analyse et la comparaison de séquences d'ADN, il travaille actuellement sur des méthodes pour mieux connaître les populations de globules blancs. Mathieu a également une activité d'informatique musicale. Il dirige l'équipe émergente Algomus qui se focalise sur l'analyse de partitions: est-ce qu'un ordinateur peut comprendre la musique ?

Research interests : text algorithms for bioinformatics and musicology

Bioinformatics

I am a member of the Bonsai bioinformatics group (Pr. Hélène Touzet) at CRIStAL / INRIA Lille, mainly working on NGS algorithms.

Research topics

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 musicology

I am the head of the "Algorithmic musicology" exploratory action at CRIStAL/MIS/SCV. 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.

Research topics

  • modeling and comparison of symbolic musical sequences: patterns, harmony, rhythm, texture
  • structure analysis : fugues, variations, sonata forms...
See the Algomus website

Master/PhD proposals

Je propose en 2014 une thèse et deux stages de recherche pour M2 ou école d'ingénieur: Excellent students in algorithms for musicology or for bioinformatics interested in some of my research themes can always contact me. Please send a curriculum vitae.

Short Bio

Mathieu Giraud is a CNRS Associate Researcher in the Centre de Recherche en Informatique, Signal et Automatique de Lille (CRIStAL), the departement of Computer Science of the Université Lille, in France. He is also a member of the joint Bonsai project with the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique (Inria). He is a former 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, on high-performance computing using GPUs and many-cores architectures, and on RNA bioinformatics. His current research interests target text algorithms for bioinformatics and computer musicology
