I am a mathematician specialized in probabilities and stochastic analysis, and am currently pursuing a PhD degree in the Laboratoire de Probabilités et Modèles Aléatoires of the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris. I have also been an active member of the Mathematical Neuroscience Team of the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Biology – Collège de France since fall 2012.

My investigations are involved with the derivation of mean-field results for a large class of neural networks displaying random interactions. These systems undergo a complex – and yet to be explained – transition from stationary solutions toward chaotic ones as the level of heterogeneity is increased. My research interests include stochastic analysis, large deviations, disordered systems, interacting particles, and mean-field theory.

My scientific education has been chronologically completed at Lycée Louis-le-Grand (preparatory school for “Concours des Grandes Écoles”, 2007-2009), École Polytechnique (2009-2013), and Université Pierre et Marie Curie (2012-2013). I graduated in 2013.
