Latest news

On September 1st, I joined Université Paris Dauphine-PSL as a maître de conférences (equivalent to assistant professor, with promotion to associate professor after one year)!

Short bio

  • November 2016 to August 2019: postdoctoral research associate within the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, in Madison, Wisconsin (USA). I was fortunate to work in the group of Stephen J. Wright.

  • November 4, 2016: PhD in applied mathematics from the university of Toulouse, delivered by the Université Toulouse III Paul Sabatier. It was prepared at the Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse, under the joint supervision of Serge Gratton and Luís Nunes Vicente.

  • 2013-2016: teaching assistant (moniteur, in charge of lab and tutorial sessions) at the French Engineering School ENSEEIHT.

  • October 2013: Engineer degree (equivalent to Master's Degree) in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, and Master in Computer Science from Toulouse INP (National Polytechnic Institute).

  • For more information, you can have a look at my vitae in a short or extended format.

    Research interests

    My research essentially revolves around the field of numerical optimization and its applications, particularly in complex systems and data science.
    My current work aims at developing efficient nonconvex optimization algorithms, with a focus on incorporating randomness (typically within linear algebra techniques), and establishing complexity guarantees for those frameworks.
    Following the lines of my Ph.D., I also maintain a high interest in derivative-free optimization and its applications to solving simulation-based problems.
