# Manon Stipulanti

I am currently a FNRS postdoctoral researcher in the Discrete Mathematics team of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Liège (Belgium), under the co-supervision of Émilie Charlier and Michel Rigo.

I am co-organizing the virtual One World Seminar on Combinatorics on Words, with Anna Frid, Narad Rampersad and Jeffrey Shallit. It is held bi-weekly on Mondays, with a break in Summer. If you're willing to give a talk, feel free to contact me!

Previously, from October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2019, I was a FRIA grantee and a PhD student in the Discrete Mathematics team of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Liège (Belgium), under the co-supervision of Émilie Charlier and Michel Rigo.

Then, from October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2020, I was a Francqui Foundation Fellow of the Beglian American Educational Foundation (BAEF). Under this title, I carried out postdoctoral research at Hofstra University (Long Island, New York, USA) under the supervision of Eric Rowland.

Here is a short CV.

# Research Interests

2010 Mathematics Subject Classification: 05A05, 05A10, 05A15, 11A63, 11A67, 11B39, 11B57, 11B65, 11B85, 11K16, 28A78, 28A80, 41A60, 68R15, 68Q45, 68Q70, 94A45.

My main scientific interests lie at the interplay between combinatorics on words, numeration systems, formal languages and automata theory. I also play with number theory on the side. I like questions related to Pascal's triangle, binomial coefficients, words complexity functions, infinite words (e.g., automatic, synchronized, regular, morphic, Lyndon, Nyldon, Sturmian, episturmian), Cobham's theorems, factorizations of words (e.g., Ziv-Lempel, Crochemore, string attractors), and pattern avoidance (e.g., fractional powers). And I love sequences of integers, especially the OEIS! More can be found in the research section.

"Beginning with the outside influences, it can be said that the recent development of combinatorics is somewhat of a cinderella story. It used to be looked down on by “mainstream” mathematicians as being somehow less respectable than other areas, in spite of many services rendered to both pure and applied mathematics. Then along came the prince of computer science with its many mathematical problems and needs — and it was combinatorics that best fitted the glass slipper held out."

# Other Activites

## Teaching

I am usually in charge of exercises sessions, sometimes theoretic classes, mainly in Discrete Mathematics. More acurate information can be found in the teaching section.

## Outreach

### MATh.en.JEANS

I regularly take part into the MATh.en.JEANS project that aims to initiate students from high schools to scientific research and collaboration.

During 2015—2016, together with Marie Kreusch and Sébastien Labbé, I supervised groups of students from the Royal Charles Rogier high school of Liège. High school students presented their work during the small congress in Liège on April 15—16, 2016 and/or during the congress in Metz on April 21—23, 2016.

During 2016—2017, together with Julien Raskin, I supervised groups of students from the Saint-Jacques high school of Liège. A big congress was held in Liège on April 28—30, 2017.

During 2017—2018, together with Adeline Massuir and Julien Raskin, I supervised groups of students from the Saint-Jacques high school of Liège. A big congress was organized in Nancy March 23—24, 2018.

During 2018—2019, together with Adeline Massuir and Matthieu Rosenfeld, I am supervising groups of students from the Saint-Jacques high school of Liège. This year, the congress took place in Louvain-La-Neuve on March 3—5, 2019.

### Math à Modeler

I also provide help during activities organized by the team Math à Modeler from Liège directed by Michel Rigo. Math à Modeler was created in Grenoble (France), and aims to initiate a general public to scientific research and mathematics through games inspired by problems in Discrete Mathematics.

## Representation

I am a represent of the scientific staff at the Councils of the Department of Mathematics and Faculty of Sciences.

From 2016 to 2019, I was an active member of the Ph.D. candidates network (ReD) at the University of Liège, providing help as a logistics coordinator.
