To reach me: Email cmathieu[@]di[.]ens[.]fr
Beware: This year I spend a lot of time going back and forth between various schools and universities in Paris, so it is hard to reach me on the phone. I read email every day, deal with it using a "last in first out" strategy (limited to what I have time for), and try to reserve a large block of time to empty my Inbox about once a week. If I have not answered your email after one week, it may have gotten buried, or I am swamped.

Brief Bio
Claire Mathieu works on algorithms, particularly the design of approximation schemes for NP-hard combinatorial optimization problems. She is employed by CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) in Paris, France. Her current research interests include approximation algorithms for planar graphs and for Euclidean problems; probabilistic models for social networks; hierarchies of semi-definite programming relaxations; network tomography; scheduling to minimize energy; online algorithms; computing with noisy information; facility location and clustering; and occasional forays into algorithmic game theory.

Claire Mathieu was a recipient of the IBM Young Researcher award, was a junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France, and her paper "On the Sum-of-Squares Algorithm for Bin Packing" received the INFORMS 2007 ICS prize.

Most of them can be found on DBLP, see also Arxiv.

In 2017-2018 I am teaching Algorithms at Collège de France.
I taught a Coursera MOOC on Approximation Algorithms.
