Research Support

Currently supported by a Chaire de l'IDEX Paris Saclay. Formerly supported by JSPS grants 26700002, 23700172 and 25540100 as a PI, 23300061 as a collaborator.


I received my Ph.D. in 11/2005 working at Ecole des Mines de Paris. Before that I graduated from the ENSAE with a master degree from ENS Cachan. I worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Tokyo, between 11/2005 and 03/2007. Between 04/2007 and 09/2008 I worked in the financial industry. After working at the ORFE department of Princeton University between 02/2009 and 08/2010 as a lecturer, I was at the Graduate School of Informatics of Kyoto University between 09/2010 and 09/2016 as an associate professor (tenured in 11/2013). I have joined ENSAE in 09/2016. I now work there part-time, since 10/2018 when I have joined the Paris office of Google Brain, as a research scientist.
