I am currently spending the semester in MSRI.

Since September 2015, I am a Maître de conférences (~Assistant Professor) in LPMA at université Paris Diderot. I am a member of the research project SAMARA.

Between September 2013 and August 2015, I was
a CNRS/PIMS postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Nicole Tomczak-Jaegermann and Alexander Litvak in the department of Mathematical and Statistical sciences at the University of Alberta.
I completed my PhD under the supervision of Olivier Guédon at Université Paris-Est Marne-La-Vallée where I defended my thesis on May 21, 2013. Here is a photo of my thesis committee. My PhD was awarded "Prix de thèse UPE" by the doctoral school of Paris-Est, here is my short presentation during the ceremony (from 1:10 till 1:17).

  My research interests are: Random matrices
and concentration inequalities, random graphs, asymptotic geometric analysis, high dimensional convex geometry, matrix column selection problems and data reduction.
