Short Biography

I am a postdoctoral researcher under the supervision of Arnaud Doucet, working on generative models based on denoising diffusions. From 2019 to 2022, I worked on a PhD thesis under the direction of Nicolas Chopin and focused on various aspects of Sequential Monte Carlo methods (aka particle filters). Before that, I graduated from the engineering programme at Ecole Polytechnique.
