About me

Since September $1^\mbox{st}$ 2021, I am an associate professor (maître de conférences) in Université Paris-Saclay. I am doing my research at the LISN in the team GALaC, and I am teaching at the Faculté des Sciences d'Orsay.

Before that, I have held three postdoctoral positions.

I have obtained the degree of doctor in Mathematics from Radboud University, and in Computer Sciences from the Université de Lorraine, on 04/11/2019. My PhD has been supervised by Ross Kang and Jean-Sébastien Sereni [manuscript, slides]. My thesis has been awarded the prize Charles Delorme, which honours each year an outstanding thesis in Graph Theory.

My main research activities focus on the colouring problem in various contexts, including graph powers, locally sparse graphs, distributed colouring, randomised algorithms. I have also worked on problems from Bio-Informatics related to circular codes, using efficient graph theoretical tools.
