I am interested in abstract homotopy theory (model category, cofibration category, fibration category), category theory (locally presentable category, accessible category, enriched category), especially when applied in computer science, but not only. I am a reviewer for the Mathematical Reviews since 2006 and Zentralblatt MATH since 2007.

I also write referee reports for mathematical and computer scientific papers. However, I do not work in any way for Elsevier, Springer, John Wiley & Sons and Informa. In particular, this means that I do not attend any conference where people are forced to publish in such a journal. I do not write referee reports for these conferences either. To understand the reasons, read for example about the obscene profits of commercial scholarly publishers or Elsevier journals — some facts (translated in French here). These companies make more than 35% of profit margin, at the level of Apple and Microsoft, two other companies making too much money thanks to dematerialized products which should be free. Unfortunately, I had to publish in the past papers in such journals because too many conference's organizers and too many editors do not care about this problem (1). A version coming from ArXiv: Author P.Gaucher is available here for these papers unless the published version is freely available.

(1) for some of them because they actually do make money from this situation: see the story of the Journal of K-Theory.
