About me

I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science, in the Computing and Mathematical Science Department at Caltech. My advisors are Adam Wierman and Katrina Ligett. I am a member of RSRG, DOLCIT and SISL. Prior to that, I received a Master's degree in Operations Research at Columbia University where I worked with Augustin Chaintreau, and an engineering degree from Supelec, a French Grande Ecole.
I visited and interned at Microsoft Research New England in Spring and Summer 2017, where I worked with Yiling Chen, Nicole Immorlica, Brendan Lucier and Vasilis Syrgkanis. I visited Aaron Roth at University of Pennsylvania during Summer 2018.

Research Interests

My main interests lie at the intersection of Computer Science and Economics. My primary focus is to study the new economic and algorithmic challenges posed by the generation of larger and larger amounts of data. In particular, I am interested in the following questions: Here is a link to my CV.
