Hi, welcome to my homepage.

I am a first year PhD student in the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit at UCL and an ELLIS PhD student.

Previously, I was a research assistant at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in the Computational Statistics and Machine Learning team in Genoa, working with Massimiliano Pontil and Carlo Ciliberto. From May 2020 to November 2020, I was a (remote) research intern with Pierre Alquier and Emtiyaz Khan in the Approximate Bayesian Inference Team of the RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project in Tokyo.

I graduated the Master MVA (Machine Learning and Computer Vision) from ENS Paris Saclay and obtained the engineering degree of ENSAE specialising in Statistics. Prior to that, I received a BSc in Mathematics from the Université Paris Dauphine and spent a semester at the University of Honk Kong.
