Jean Krivine’s homepage


Since 2009:

I am a CNRS researcher (CR1) in IRIF (Institute of fundamental research in Informatics) in the PPS team (Proofs, Programs and Systems) at Université Paris Diderot.

I am also member of the scientific board of the INS2I (CNRS).

March 2009 - Sep 2009:

Visiting scientist at Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHÉS).

Arndt Benecke’s team. Formal language for molecular biology and modeling of epigenetic regulation and DNA repair mechanisms.

March 2008 - 2009:

Postdoctoral Fellow in Fontana's lab, Systems Biology Department, Harvard Medical School. Concurrency theory and modeling of bio-molecular networks.

March 2007 - 2008:

Postdoctoral fellow at LIX (École Polytechnique) with Robin Milner on the study and application of the theory of bigraphs.

Jul '06 - March '07:

Developer at Plectix Biosystems Inc. (Boston, US): realization of the platform for the collective development and analysis of biological models.


- Ph.D student (Reversible process algebra) in MOSCOVA team, supervised by Jean-Jacques Lévy at INRIA-Rocquencourt.

- Teaching assistant at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6): functional languages (Scheme, Ocaml) and C programming.

Short CV

I am interested in fundamental aspects of computer science, mainly models for concurrency (non interleaving semantics, event structures), quantitative simulation (stochastic semantics), formal languages including bigraphs, Kappa and process algebra. I am investigating applications of these concepts to highly distributed systems such as self assembling or transactional systems and molecular interaction networks.
