Hugues Berry is a Research Professor with the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA) in Lyon, France. He received his Ph.D. degree in biochemistry and biophysics in 1999 from the University of Technology of Compiegne, France, and was appointed as an Associate Professor at the Biology Department of the University of Cergy-Pontoise, France, in 2000. In 2004, he moved to INRIA, first with project-team Alchemy in Orsay, then in Lyon with project-team Beagle, a joint research group of INRIA and University of Lyon. His research interests are in computational cell biology and computational neuroscience. More specifically, Professor Berry currently focuses on the influence of space and macromolecular crowding in intracellular signaling and biochemistry and on the molecular networks implicated in neuronal plasticity and glial cell-neuron interactions. He (co-)authored more than 50 papers published in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences.
