I am working in probability theory. Since October 2015, I have been a CNRS researcher in Ceremade, in the university Paris-Dauphine.

I am organizing the working group ESCAPADE in Ceremade with Mathieu Lewin and the working group "Random matrices et graphs" MEGA in IHP with Camille Male.

I defended my PhD in France in December 2012, you can find the slides of my defence (in French) and the manuscript (partially in French). My PhD advisors are Bálint Tóth and Wendelin Werner.

My main research interests are SLE processes, conformal invariance, statistical models and near-criticality, large deviations, self-interacting processes, and random matrices.
