Ph.D. Candidate
INRIA - SIERRA team
Laboratoire d'informatique de l'École Normale Supérieure


I am a Ph.D candidate supervised by Simon Lacoste-Julien, I graduated from ENS Ulm and Université Paris-Saclay. I am currently doing an internship at Sierra. I also worked for 6 months as a freelance Data Scientist for Monsieur Drive and Les Suggestions de Nelly. My work focuses on convex optimization. More details can be found in my resume.


Research interests


I am interested in any nice theoretical problems coming from any fields. For now, I worked on optimization and machine learning, in particular:
  • Convex optimization.
  • Saddle point optimization.
  • Non-nonvex optimization.
  • Sequential learning.
  • Inference on graphical models.
