I'm an assistant professor at the "Ecole des Mines de St Etienne" in the team DEMO of the Fayol Institute. I am working at the frontier between statistical modelling and machine learning.

I obtained in 2011 a PhD from the Ecole des Mines de St-Etienne entitled "Étude de classes de noyaux adaptées à la simplification et à l’interprétation des modèles d’approximation. Une approche fonctionnelle et probabiliste".

My research interests include kernel based methods for interpolation or approximation problems, both from the Gaussian process and RKHS point of view.
