Welcome to my Homepage

I am currently a CNRS researcher (CR2) at the Institut de Mathematiques de Toulouse. Previously, I was a postdoc in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, under the supervision of Lawrence C. Evans and Fraydoun Rezakhanlou. I did my PhD in the LPMA, at the University Pierre et Marie Curie, in Paris under the supervision of Cedric Villani.

My main theme of research is applications of optimal transport in analysis, probability and statistical physics. More broadly, topics I am interested in include interacting particle systems, functional inequalities, variational methods for PDEs, large deviations, Ricci curvature in discrete spaces, Stein's method for convergence of probability distributions and numerical schemes for random dynamics
