Christophe Godin, INRIA Research Director in Plant Modeling and Computer Science, Montpellier, France
Christophe is head of the INRIA Virtual Plants team. His main research interests are related to computational modeling of plant morphogenesis from cell to whole-plant scales. In the recent years, he has been particularly interested in how to represent meristem models that include hormone transport and regulatory networks. His group is also developing OpenAleaLab, a software platform dedicated to modeling morphogenesis that is able to integrate a broad range of computational approaches.
For almost 50 years, the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA) has integrated novel computational and mathematical approaches to address practical research problems in the engineering, physical and life sciences. The Institute has over 3400 researchers distributed around 8 main regional sites, plus collaborative groups in various other places. Its research activities fall under 5 domains, including Digital Health, Biology and Earth, where the Virtual Plants team resides.
Christophe Godin co-supervises one of the Early-Stage Researchers of EpiTRAITS in aspects of dynamic modelling of multicellular meristems undergoing the floral transition.
