Current position

Since September 2015, I am an associate professor («maître de conférences ») in statistics at the Toulouse Mathematics Institute and at the University Paul Sabatier. I am also a member of the AOC project.

Between October 2013 and August 2015, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Statistics and Operations Research of the University of Vienna. I worked there with Benedikt Pötscher and Hannes Leeb.

From October 2010 to September 2013, I was a Ph.D student in Statistics at the Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and at the Probabilities and Random Models Laboratory, University Paris Diderot. My Ph.D director was Josselin Garnier and I was also supervised by Jean-Marc Martinez.
