About me

I am currently an assistant professor at Paris Dauphine University (France). I work on algorithmic game theory and more precisely on algorithmic mechanism design and algorithmic cooperative game theory. During my PhD at the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France), supervised by Patrice Perny, I worked on linear programming formulation for some combinatorial problems where the aggregating function is non-affine (like the ordered weighted average or the Choquet integral).

For more details check my PhD thesis.
