Erwan Scornet Homepage
Since september 2016, I am an assistant professor at the Center for Applied Mathematics (CMAP) in Ecole Polytechnique near Paris. My research interests focus on theoretical statistics and Machine Learning with a particular emphasis on nonparametric estimates. I did my PhD thesis on a particular algorithm of Machine Learning called random forests, under the supervision of
Gérard Biau (LSTA - Paris 6) and Jean-Philipe Vert (Institut Curie).
