Welcome to my homepage!
I am a researcher at Inria Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes in the Mistis team (Grenoble, France) and member of Laboratoire Jean Kuntzmann in Université Grenoble Alpes.
Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Bocconi University (Milan, Italy) and Collegio Carlo Alberto (Turin, Italy) involved in the European Research Council project New directions in Bayesian nonparametrics, and a statistician at Insee in Paris, the French National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies.
I received my PhD in Applied Mathematics (Statistics) at Université Paris-Dauphine. My supervisors were Judith Rousseau and Ghislaine Gayraud. I also graduated from Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau, France) and ENSAE (Paris).
