I am a CNRS researcher at the interface of mathematics and computer science. My current host lab is the Laboratoire J. A. Dieudonné of Université Côte d’Azur located in the beautiful city of Nice.

My research interests include optimization for (graph) signal processing and machine learning, algorithmic differentiation and the use of sparsity in these domains. I am currently PI of the ANR JCJC GraVa, dedicated to a subset of these research topics.

Previously, I was a member of Institut de Mathématiques de Bourgogne, located in the city of Dijon, France during 2015-2021 and a postdoc at CMAP, the applied math institute of École Polytechnique, under the supervision of Antonin Chambolle during the academic year 2014-2015. Before that, I did my PhD at CEREMADE (Univ. Paris-Dauphine) under the supervision of Gabriel Peyré.
