Hello visitor, and welcome on my home page!

A brief summary

I am a Ph.D. student in the Sierra Team (since 2015), which is part of the Computer Science Department of École Normale Supérieure Ulm. I am supervised by Alexandre d’Aspremont and Francis Bach.

Prior to that, I graduated from École Polytechnique de Louvain in 2015 and got a master degree in Mathematical Engineering. I did my master thesis in optimization, and my advisor was Yurii Nesterov.

Moreover, I collaborated with Leopold Cambier and Anthony Papavasiliou for the creation of the FAST toolbox, and also with Raphael Jungers and Julien Hendrickx in the context of the JSR Toolbox.

Research interests
