Welcome to my homepage. I am an Associate Professor at ENSAI, Bruz, France and an academic member of the Crest lab. I am working in the field of statistics and machine learning. I am also interested by developing probability tools for these subjects.

Since 2016, I am an elected member of the "groupe stat math" which is a group of researchers aiming at promoting mathematical statistics in France and on behalf of the French statistical society (Société Française de Statistique, SfDS).
