About

I am currently a PhD candidate in computer vision at the University of Paris-Saclay. My research interests are in computer vision applied to the social sciences. At the moment, I am working on a visual search engine for French sign language at Limsi, as well as a side-project in remote sensing and economics. I also love teaching mathematics/statistics/econometrics-related classes.

After finishing a four-year degree in pure mathematics and a masters degree in economics, I spent 2 incredible years working for eXplain designing targeting and predictive models for major European election campaigns. I recently completed the MVA program at the ENS Paris-Saclay.
