I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Statistics at the University of Washington working with the NSF-TRIPODS ADSI members Zaid Harchaoui, Dmitriy Drusvyatskiy, Maryam Fazel, Sham Kakade, Yin Tat Lee.

I got my Ph.D. from École Normale Supérieure Ulm under the supervision of Alexandre d'Aspremont within the Sierra Team led by Francis Bach.

During my thesis, I worked on mathematical optimization approaches for data science problems with an underlying combinatorial structure. I am now working on dynamic optimization problems for data science.

More details can be found in my resume.
