About me


Since Septembre 2019 I am a postdoctoral researcher jointly at the École Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay and at EDF, working with Vianney Perchet, Olivier Beaude and Pierre Gruet on learning in repeated auctions with applications to smart grids.

Before that, I was a research and teaching associate at Université Paris Dauphine.

I completed my Ph.D. in applied mathematics at the Toulouse School of Economics under the supervision of Jérôme Renault. It has been awarded the Ph.D. Award of the Gaspard Monge Program for Optimization.
