After an engineering diploma from the french engineering school ISIMA (Clermont-Ferrand) and a Research Masters Degree from the Blaise Pascal university (Clermont-Ferrand), I started a PhD thesis at Ecole des Mines Saint-Etienne. I am funded by a CIFRE grant from the ANSYS company, subsidized by the French National Association for  Research and Technology (ANRT, CIFRE grant number 2014/1349). My research interests are statistical modeling, prediction uncertainty quantification, optimization and sequential design.
