About me


Since September 2021, I am a PhD student at LaBRI, Université de Bordeaux, under the supervision of Diego Figueira, Nathanaël Fijalkow and Marcin Jurdziński. Before that, from 2017 to 2021, I was a student at École normale supérieure Paris-Saclay, and passed the agrégation de mathématiques.


You can send me an email at x @u-bordeaux.fr where x = remi.morvan (in French or in English). You can also visit me in my office (number 325) in LaBRI.



I am interested in automata, logics and games.

From March 2019 to July 2019, I did an internship (internship defense) at the Department of Computer Science, at the University of Warwick, under the supervision of Marcin Jurdziński, on recursive algorithms for parity games.

Then, between March 2021 and August 2021, I studied the separation of transfinite regular languages (regular languages of words indexed by countable ordinals) by first-order logic (internship defense & internship report) under the supervision of Thomas Colcombet and Sam van Gool at IRIF, Université de Paris.

In 2021–2022, I am giving exercises sessions (TD) at Université de Bordeaux for the following classes:

In 2020–2021, I gave oral exams (khôlles) to first-year students in prépa, in mathematics, at Lycée Saint-Louis, Paris. You can download the exercises I gave, in French.
