I am a researcher at Mila Institute (Montréal, QC), working with Prof. Ioannis Mitliagkas, and Affiliate Assistant Professor at the Mathematics & Statistics Department at Concordia University (Montréal, QC).

I am co-PI of the CIFAR AI Catalyst Grant “Rethinking generalization and model diagnostics in modern machine learning”.

Previously, I was a Post-doctoral Fellow at Colorado State University (Fort Collins, CO, USA), working with Prof. Ken McLaughlin on asymptotic properties of nonlinear partial differential equations and ensembles of random matrices.
Before that I was an Assistante de Recherche at the Institut de Recherche en Mathématique et Physique - Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium), working under the mentorship of Prof. Tom Claeys as team member of the ERC project “Critical phenomena in random matrix theory and integrable systems” (CRaMIS).

I received my PhD in Mathematics in 2014 from Concordia University under the supervision of Prof. Marco Bertola.

In the picture above I am at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics (Stony Brook University, NY), but you can usually find me at the Concordia Math Department (LB 1030) or at Mila (zone J).
