About Me

I am a CNRS researcher working in Laboratoire d'analyse et d'architecture des systèmes, within the POP research team.

Until September 2020 I was a postdoctoral researcher at École normale supérieure de Lyon, CNRS, Laboratoire de l'Informatique du Parallélisme, within the research team MC2.

From 2015 to 2018 I was a doctoral researcher at Centre de Mathématiques Appliquées, École polytechnique, CNRS, Université Paris-Saclay, within INRIA research team Tropical, where I worked under the supervision of Xavier Allamigeon and Stéphane Gaubert.

My research is focused on the interplay between tropical geometry, convex optimization, and algorithmic game theory. I am also working on problems related to algebraic complexity.

Master and PhD proposals

Together with Georg Loho we are looking for an internship candidate on the topic Understanding games and linear programming through tropical geometry – check out the description!

I am also looking for a student who would like to do a PhD on topics related to tropical geometry and/or games. Feel free to contact me if you are interested!
