About Me

I am a DPhil student at the University of Oxford, in the Department of Statistics, part of Oxford Statistical Machine Learning Group, supervised by Pr Yee Whye Teh, and a member of Mansfield college. Previously, I was a graduate enrolled in the Mathematiques, Vision, Learning master at Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay, with an emphasis on machine learning. Prior to that, I worked for Criteo as a data scientist intern, where I improved predictive bidding models. I previously studied at Ecole des Ponts ParisTech in the mathematics and computer science department, where I spent two years. I did my classes préparatoires in Lycée Georges Clémenceau at Nantes.

I am supported by the European Research Council under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007–2013) / ERC grant agreement no. 617071, and by Microsoft Research through its PhD Scholarship Programme.

Research interests

My interests are centered on the fields of mathematics and computer science. I am most interested in machine learning sub-fields, Bayesian inference, graphical models and sampling methods. I am currently working on approximate infence. I also have a keen interest in surfing.
