I am a second-year Ph.D student within the SC team of IRIT, the computer science research institute of Toulouse. I work under the supervision of Cédric Févotte, Édouard Pauwels and Jérôme Bolte. I am a member of the FACTORY project.

I was previously a six-month intern at ITAV under the supervision of Pierre Weiss and Frédéric de Gournay where I was working on Semi-infinite Programming and Inverse Problems. I both graduated from INSA Toulouse and Université Paul Sabatier where I obtained master's degrees respectively in "Applied Mathematics and Modeling" and "Applied Mathematics, major: Partial Differential Equations".

My research focuses on optimization algorithms and their applications in Deep Learning and Machine Learning models. I also spend a reduced amount of time giving tutorials and practicals at INP ENSEEIHT where I teach Probabilities, Statistics and Integration Theory to master students.
