Maître de conférences

Université Paris-Saclay


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.

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

  • Optimal Transport
  • Mathematical Physics
  • Mathematical Economics
  • Numerical Analysis
  • PhD in Applied Mathematics, 2016

    PSL-Université Paris-Dauphine

  • Master degree in Mathematical Engineering, 2013

    Politecnico di Milano


I will be in Edmonton working with Brendan Pass
M2 class on Optimal Transportation
Co-lecturing a class on Optimal Transportation Theory with Yann Brenier
Analysis and PDE Seminar (online)
