I have been a Ph.D. student at the DSME Institute since March 2021. I am supervised by Pr. Dr. Sebastian Trimpe, and co-supervised by Dr. Friedrich Solowjow. Before that, I received a Master's degree in engineering from Mines Paristech with a focus on applied mathematics and computer science, and another one in artificial intelligence from Paris-Dauphine University. I did my Master thesis at the Intelligent Control Systems group and was supervised by Dr. Steve Heim.

I am interested in how data can be used to update our beliefs about dynamical systems. More specifically, my Ph.D. aims at designing mathematical tools to compare dynamical systems from data. I also work on Safe Reinforcement Learning, as a continuation of my Master thesis.

Outside of work, I enjoy climbing and other sports, games, reading, and other activities depending on my current mood. Feel free to drop me an email if you want to discuss (research-related or not).
