I am the director of M2 Optimization, a master program of Université Paris-Saclay and Institut Polytechnique de Paris. I teach or taught the following courses: Convex analysis and optimization (M2), Optimization (L3), Numerical analysis (M1), Optimal transport (M2).


My research interests include optimal transport, inverse problems, numerical analysis and geometric methods for data analysis. The numerical methods I propose often rely on techniques from optimization and computational geometry. I coordinate the Monge-Ampère et Géométrie Algorithmique project, funded by the French national research agency (ANR).
