Hi! I'm a researcher in mathematical physics. Between 2015 and 2018, I was a PhD student at Institut de Physique Théorique (Saclay), under the supervision of François David and Bertrand Eynard. Between 2018 and 2020, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institut für Mathematik (Bonn), where my mentor was Gaëtan Borot. Since September 1st, I have been postdoctoral reseacher at the Institut de Recherche en Informatique Fondamentale (Paris) in the combinatorics team, participating to the ERC CombiTop under the supervision of Guillaume Chapuy.

Areas of interest:

I'm interested in areas at the interface between enumerative geometry (intersection numbers on moduli spaces, Masur-Veech volumes, Hurwitz numbers), combinatorics (maps, fully simple maps, combinatorial Teichmüller space), and mathematical physics (2D quantum gravity, statistical physics models on random maps). Many of the problems I have tackled until now could be solved using topological recursion or geometric recursion procedures. 



PhD thesis:

Liouville theory and random maps, under the supervision of François David and Bertrand Eynard, prepared at Institut de Physique Théorique (Saclay) and defended in September 2018.
