Research interests

I am broadly interested in statistics, probability and computation. The questions that drive my research are the fundamental limits of extracting information from noisy data, and the algorithmic feasibility of this task. I like to think about large random structures such as matrices, graphs and tensors, and understand how sudden changes in their structural properties have statistical and algorithmic consequences.

About me

I recently obtained my PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California at Berkeley, under the supervision of Michael I. Jordan. I did my master's at Ecole Normale Supérieure and my undergrad at Ecole Polytechnique. I wrote my master's dissertation on probabilistic record linkage while working at Ecole des Ponts with Guillaume Obozinski.
