About me

I'm currently a third-year PhD Student in Statistics at the Center for research in economics and statistics (CREST), Paris. My supervisor is Guillaume Lecué.

My research interest lies broadly in the intersection of high-dimensionnal geometry, robust statistics and concentration of measure phenomenons. I'm fascinated by the theoretical study of phase transitions, whether they come from physics or from social science (the so-called "complex systems")


I've had and will have the pleasure of assisting in teaching several courses, here are some.

I've entirely held (lectures+ tutorials) a crash course on basic statistics, differential equations and optimization for students joining ENSAE with a background in economics. Download the lecture notes or see the page of the course.
