After graduating from the MVA Master 2 in the summer 2015, I am currently in the third year of my PhD under the direction of Alain Trouvé at the ENS of Cachan. I am also employed as a "Caïman" (tutor and teaching assistant) by the École Normale Supérieure, in the Department of Mathematics.
I am mainly interested in shape analysis, focusing on Riemannian methods such as LDDMM deformations and optimal transport plans. Here is a CV.
I have been playing the flute for 11 years at the Conservatoire Paul Dukas, in Paris. I especially enjoy playing baroque music : J.S. & C.P.E. Bach, J.J. Quantz, G.P. Telemann... In june 2014, I gratuated from the Conservatoire, obtaining a "Certificat de Fin d'Études Musicales" diploma. Here is my leaflet programme, in French : Mathematics in Music.
My other interests include ancient history, Chinese culture and pedagogy. Here are some books that I would strongly recommend:
- Oliver Byrne's "The Elements of Euclid": A pedagogical masterpiece.
- Thucydide's History of the Peloponnesian War, a thrilling mix of adventure, political acumen and drama.
- Chaos and Dimensions, two movies by Jos Leys, Aurélien Alvarez and Étienne Ghys. A must-see for anyone interested in math!
- Faraday's Chemical History of a Candle, explained by Bill Hammack, the engineerguy.
- Topology from the Differentiable Viewpoint by John Milnor : An extremely concise and elegant introduction to differential topology. Everything — including Brouwer fixed point theorem and Hopf theorem — is deduced from the single fact that a smooth and compact 1-manifold has an even number of extremal points...
- Hyperbolic Geometry by J.W. Cannon: Includes a proof (by William Thurston) of the usual properties of the Poincare's Half plane... without a single calculation, but stereographic projections and symmetries instead.
