Hi! I am a post-doctoral research at the Barcelona School of Economics-Universitat Pompeu Fabra in the Statistics group, working on excitng high-dimensional statistical problems and networks.

I obtained a PhD in January 2023 from the Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford, where I was supervised by Professors Judith Rousseau, Mihai Cucuringu, Xiaowen Dong and Vincent Rivoirard. I also did an internship at Amazon Research Berlin with Michele Donini.

Prior to that, I received an Engineering Degree from Ecole Polytechnique in Paris.

My research interests are fairly broad and include Bayesian nonparametric methods, graphs/networks, explainability & fairness in machine learning. I have notably worked on Hawkes processes, spectral clustering, graph neural networks, variational inference, counterfactual analysis.

I am also interested in statistics for epidemiology, demography, and economics, and looking for projects outside the academic world :eyes:
