François Durand


I was a student at the École Normale Supérieure, rue d'Ulm from 2000 to 2005. My formation was in Physics, Computer Science and Political Science. From 2003 to 2010, I worked in the humanitarian field as a trainer, financial coordinator and manager. From 2011 to 2015, I worked at LINCS, a joint lab between academics and industrials, as a research engineer in the GANG research team. In 2015-2017, I worked as a postdoctorate associate in a joint project involving the LAMSADE of Université Paris Dauphine and the CREM team of Université Caen - Basse Normandie. Since 2018, I have been working in the Gangsta team of Nokia Bell Labs France.

In my doctorate and posdoctorate works, I worked mostly on voting systems and their manipulability (tactical voting), using computer simulations and tools from game theory. For an overview, watch my PhD defense. I developped SVVAMP, Simulator of Various Voting Algorithms in Manipulating Populations, a Python package dedicated to the study of voting systems and their manipulability : https://svvamp.readthedocs.org.

My most recent research interest addresses the application of deep neural networks to games where communication is a central issue, such as bidding in contract bridge.
