Exact solution of binary dynamics

I'm proud to release a paper called Exact analytical solution of irreversible binary dynamics on networks. Our contribution is analytic and numerical in nature. We obtain an analytical solution to cascade dynamics and propose an algorithm to solve the equations as efficiently as possible. We made available the code solving the equations.

Annual Sentinel North Conference

After weeks of work, my study of the networks of Sentinel North has finally been presented by Patrick Desrosiers at the annual Sentinel North conference. I also had the opportunity to give a blitz talk of three minutes, a unique opportunity to practice communication skills.

Summer school

On May 15 and 16, I was assisting a summer school on the connectivity of the brain. The Domain Cataraqui has been well chosen to host the school and provided a quiet environment.

IV Mediterranean School of Complex Networks

In September, I will attend a (late) summer school in Sicily, Italy. The four major themes of the school are closely related to my research interests: complex networks, nonlinear dynamics, synchronization and biological systems. Among the invited experts are Alex Arenas, Tiago Peixoto and Vito Latora.

XII Symposium Dynamica

Each year, I'm mandated to produce posters for either Symposium Numerica or Symposium Dynamica. For once, I wanted to use free gorgeous photos from unsplash. However, we thought that we could try to create custom plots, so we ended up with the Lorentz and Rösler attractors (classic). For the record, the figures are done by integrating five different initial conditions, and the colors are from colorbrewer.

NetSci 2017

I've been accepted to present two projects at NetSci 2017. My recent work on the brain's resilience (Functional resilience in dynamical complex networks with adaptive connectivity) and the last chapter of my master's thesis (Persistent activity of neural dynamics on hierarchical networks) will be presented in the neuroscience satellite and in the general conference.

New website - Ice canoeing

Two years ago, a friend asked me to do a website for its ice canoeing team (in french). I've quickly done it, but I needed images and texts to complete the website. He sent the ressources this week. It's a static website hosted on github and it's 100% custom. If you're in town this winter, go see their races, it's absolutely incredible!

Wasper

After many months of work with my partners, I can finally reveal it to the public: Wasper. It is a mobile application to buy local products delivered by the community. Yet, Wasper has not been deployed on the App Store but we've launched it on the social medias. Stay tuned for updates!

Official Website

The website is online. For those interested, I used D3.js to create the network at the top of the page and the Levy flight. Feel free to check or reuse the code by using the development tools available with your browser.
