I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science department at the École Polytechnique of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris. My research is mainly on combinatorial optimization and graph algorithms.

I received my PhD degree from the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, under the supervision of Claire Mathieu. Afterwards, I spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at the Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik in Germany.

Research internship position(s) on algorithms available for the season 2021-2022. Students with experiences on competitive programming are especially welcome to apply.
