Welcome to my personal webpage

I am currently a CNRS Researcher, based at the Toulouse Mathematics Institute.

From September 2019 to August 2021, I was Courant Instructor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences (NYU).

Previously, I did my PhD in the LPSM at Sorbonne Université, under the supervision of Zhan Shi, mainly on the branching Brownian motion. I was also simultaneously teaching assistant in the Mathematics Department of the ENS Paris.

Besides branching Brownian motion and branching random walk, my research interests include other log-correlated fields, such as two-dimensional Gaussian free field or characteristic polynomials of random matrices (in particular beta-ensembles). I have also studied the Derrida-Retaux model, which is a hierarchical renormalization model.
