short biography

hello !

I am currently a research scientist at Inria, within the SIERRA team, led by Francis Bach. I was a postdoctoral researcher in the same team in 2017-2019. Prior to that, I was at Université catholique de Louvain, in the department of mathematical engineering (part of the ICTEAM institute), where I was holding a F.R.S.-FNRS FRIA scholarship for my PhD under the supervision of François Glineur and Julien Hendrickx.

My research currently focuses on optimization (mostly first-order) and numerical analysis with a bit of control and machine learning. I find it particularly important to push toward reproducible (including theory) and understandable science, and many of my research projects have this orientation.

tutorial & slides — selected sets of slides can be found here, together with references to tutorials to accelerated first-order methods and principled (and computer-assisted) worst-case analyses.
