About me

I completed a joint PhD in Computer Science in 2018, under the supervision of Claire Mathieu at École normale supérieure and José Correa at Universidad de Chile.

I'm interested in algorithms and mechanism design in a broad sense, using tools from different areas of mathematics. I have worked primarily on the design of approximation algorithms by polynomial optimization, online algorithms for optimal stopping and pricing problems. I'm also interested in the study of social network dynamics and their economic implications, algorithmic issues of representation, and the evolution of population configurations.
