About me

I am a Hermann-Weyl Instructor (postdoc) in ETH Zurich, mentored by Afonso Bandeira.

My research is at the intersection of high-dimensional statistics, statistical physics, information theory and random matrix theory.

I defended my PhD in Theoretical Physics on August 30th 2021, which I prepared in Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris, under the supervision of Florent Krzakala and Lenka Zdeborová. I am very glad to have received the 2021 Daniel Guinier Prize of the French Physical Society for it! You can find my PhD thesis here.
