Hello! Welcome to my website! I am a maître de conférences (:= associate professor) in the department of Mathematics at Paris-Saclay University. I am also a member of the ERC team MDFT and the ANR MAGA.

Before that, I was a CNRS 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.
