I am Research Director at INRA Toulouse in the GenPhySE unit, at the Animal Genetics department. My work is related to quantitative genetics and genetic evaluation of livestock.

I did my PhD in Neiker with Eva Ugarte and I did a postdoc at the Animal and Dairy Science Department at the University of Georgia, with Ignacy Misztal and Keith Bertrand.

This is my new, non-fancy web page created with markdown and MacDown.

I have developed my own programs

and helped in others’ people programs:


Course on Genomic Selection

This is a course that is taught every two years at UGA, with materials of the 2018 edition . I often teach a part of it. Some materials that we have constructed for this course include notes Bases for Genomic Prediction in pdf , in epub , and in single-file html (but without the Appendix) formats.

Courses held at GenphySE, INRA
