About
I am a
Glasstone Research Fellow (postdoc) working at the
Department of Statistics of the
University of Oxford. Before that I
did a postdoc at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) with
Arthur Charpentier and
Hélène Guérin
on stochastic models related to the COVID19 epidemic.
I completed my PhD at the
LPSM
(Sorbonne Université) under the supervision of
Amaury Lambert
and Emmanuel Schertzer.
I was member of the
SMILE group, which gathers probabilists and biologists
interested in modeling life evolution, and is hosted at
the Collège de France.
My PhD manuscript can be found
here.
I study probabilistic objects arising from various population
models, such as coalescent processes, branching processes, and random
trees. I am also interested in the application of these objects
to the understanding of biological phenomena, mainly in population
genetics and epidemiology.
