Maître de conférences

Université Paris-Saclay


Hello! Welcome to my website! I am a maître de conférences in applied mathematics (:= associate professor) in the department of Mathematics at Paris-Saclay University. I am the P.I. of the ANR GOTA.

Before that, I was a post-doc under the supervision of Mathieu Lewin.

In December 2016 I completed my Ph.D. under the supervision of Jean-David Benamou and Guillaume Carlier.

$\bullet$ My research interests lie at the intersection of Optimal Transport, Mathematical Physics, Mathematical Economics and Numerical Optimization.

$\bullet$ With Quentin Mérigot I organise a monthly seminar on Optimal Transport, PDE and Machine Learning at LMO.

  • Optimal Transport
  • Mathematical Physics
  • Mathematical Economics
