Mathilde Bouvel

Since October 2010, I have been a CNRS junior researcher.
In August 2020, I joined the Mocqua team in LORIA.

From August 2013 until July 2020, I was on leave at the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Zürich.
From October 2010 to July 2013, I was a junior researcher at LaBRI, Bordeaux, in the group Enumerative and algebraic combinatorics of the CombAlgo team.

Before that, I was a PhD student and teaching assistant at LIAFA, University of Paris 7 - Denis Diderot.

Research interests

My research is dedicated to the study of permutations (and related objects) in enumerative, bijective and analytic combinatorics, in algorithmics, in connection with probability theory, and for random generation.
I am specifically interested in the pattern relation on permutations, permutation classes, and substitution decomposition.
Lately, I have specifically developed two main lines of research: enumeration of pattern-avoiding permutations using generating trees, and description of limits of permutation classes.

Working groups and projects I am involved in

From January 2020 until August 2021, I was the PI of the SNF Eccellenza project entitled "Enumeration and limit shapes for pattern-avoiding permutations and related combinatorial objects".
From September 2017 until December 2019, I was the PI of the SNF project entitled "Several aspects of the study of non-uniform random permutations".
From January 2015 to December 2016, I was the PI for Switzerland of a French-Swiss project entitled "Constrained random permutations: algorithms and analysis".
I am part of the working groups Aléa and Algebraic Combinatorics of the larger research group GdR-IM.
I also used to be a member of the French ANR projects Gamma (2007-2010), Magnum (2010-2014), and Psyco (2011-2014).

Seminar and conference organization

We organized in Zurich the conference Permutation Patterns, during the week June 17-21, 2019. The conference was preceeded by a workshop (June 13-15) which is introductory to the main topics of the conference.

From March 2011 to June 2013, I was in charge of organizing the LaBRI seminar.

I have also organized or co-organized the following events:
