I am a researcher in the MaIAGE team at INRA in Jouy-en-Josas, France. Currently I am on leave at KAUST, Thuwal, KSA. I did my PhD at INPT, Toulouse, France, under the supervision of Serge Gratton in Algo team where I worked on numerical methods for least squares, non convex optimization and data assimilation. I received a Master’s degree in 2011 from ENSTA ParisTech and Paris 1, where I studied Applied maths for finance.
