About me

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

For ETH students following the Spring 2023 lecture “Mathematics of Signals, Networks and Learning”, you can find all relevant information on the forum.
