I received my Ph.D. under the supervision of Jean-Philippe Vert in 11/2005 from the Ecole des Mines de Paris. Before that I graduated from the ENSAE with a master degree from ENS Cachan. I worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Tokyo, between 11/2005 and 03/2007. Between 04/2007 and 09/2008 I worked in the financial industry. After working at the ORFE department of Princeton University between 02/2009 and 08/2010 as a lecturer, I joined the Graduate School of Informatics in 09/2010 as a G30 associate professor, and I am since 11/2013 the associate professor of the Yamamoto-Cuturi lab.
