Short Bio

Since November 2014, I am a (tenured) researcher at Inria, member of the MODAL project-team (MOdels for Data Analysis and Learning) of the Inria Lille - Nord Europe research centre, France. I am also affiliated with the Laboratoire Paul Painlevé (UMR CNRS 8524), which is the mathematics department of the University of Lille.

I obtained a Ph.D. in mathematics in 2013 from UPMC (Université Pierre & Marie Curie, France) under the supervision of Gérard Biau and Éric Moulines. Prior to that, I was a research assistant at DTU Compute (Denmark) supervised by Gilles Guillot.

Research

My main line of research is in statistical machine learning. I am primarily interested in the design, analysis and implementation of statistical learning methods for high dimensional problems. My interests include (but are not limited to): PAC-Bayesian theory, sparsity and high-dimensional statistics, optimisation theory, statistical learning theory, non-negative matrix factorisation, aggregation of estimators and classifiers, MCMC algorithms, (un)supervised learning, online clustering, concentration inequalities...
