Fields of interest. Continuous and discrete optimization, low-rank matrix approximations, nonnegative matrix factorization, numerical algorithms, computational complexity, machine learning, data mining, hyperspectral imaging.

*News* I have been awarded an ERC starting grant to work on low-rank matrix approximation problems (project COLORAMAP). The project will start in September 2016. I'll be looking for one PhD student and one postdoctoral researcher. I have also been awarded an Incentive Grant for Scientific Research by the FNRS (funds for scientific reserch in Belgium) for two years and will also hire one PhD student and one postdoctoral researcher for this project.
