Dr Clément Maria
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Clément Maria received his PhD in 2014 from INRIA Sophia Antipolis-Méditerranée and the university of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, France, specialising in algorithms and data structures in computational topology.
Computational topology is a subfield of topology focusing on discrete representations of topological spaces and constructive topological methods in order to design algorithms and classify the computational complexity of topological problems.
His main interest is in persistent homology theory and low dimensional topology, and his research ranges from the complexity classification of topological problems to the design of efficient algorithms, data structures and software implementation. He is also a primary author of the open source software library Gudhi, which implements state-of-the-art algorithms in the field.
