I am a researcher at the Zuse Institute Berlin, in the AI in Society, Science, and Technology department, working with the Mathematical Optimization Methods and Interactive Optimization and Learning groups. I am associated with the MODAL-SynLab project and a member of the MATH+ Berlin Mathematics Research Center.
I am interested in the theory, methods, and computation in mathematical optimization, trying to find the provably best solution to a given problem. Slightly more specifically, I have been interested in structured constrained optimization in various settings (see below for a list of topics). Those include solution methods and software in MI(N)LP and convex optimization and in particular the SCIP framework and Frank-Wolfe related approaches.
My thesis, defended in December 2020, focuses on bilevel optimization, an extension coined near-optimality robustness, and pricing for demand response in smart grids. It was co-supervised by Luce Brotcorne (INRIA) & Miguel F. Anjos (University of Edinburgh).
I am involved in several open-source projects around optimization and scientific computing in the Julia programming language and around JuMP but like looking around on new development. Before starting the PhD, I worked in various industries, from a hardware startup to steel manufacturing. I did my joint Bachelor-Master in Process Engineering at the UTC in France with a semester at the TUBS in Germany and Polytechnique Montreal in Canada.
On a personal note, I read both fiction (mostly detective, thrillers and fantasy) and non-fiction books, on economic policy, education, and entrepreneurship (a more detailed list can be found on goodread. I also enjoy games in various formats (tabletop, video, board, card) and cooking.
