I am a PhD Candidate in Computer Science at Imperial College London with Prof. Stefanos Zafeiriou and Prof. Michael Bronstein working on Geometric Deep Learning, and a Machine Learning Engineer at Cogitat.io where I work on EEG decoding.


18/09/2022: I have submitted my thesis and am about to graduate.

I was a Research Intern at Google AI in Machine Intelligence/Machine Perception for Fall 2018 in New York City. Before that, I interned in Quantitative Research (Systematic Trading) at JPMorgan Chase & Co in London for the Summer 2018.

I graduated with an MSc in Advanced Computing from Imperial College London, and a Diplôme d'Ingénieur in Applied Mathematics and CS from Ensimag (Grenoble), both with Distinction.

I am a Qualcomm Innovation Fellow (2019), thanks Qualcomm!

I co-organized the first edition of LOGML, an interdisciplinary summer school in geometry and machine learning in summer 2021. For more information on past and current editions, please visit https://logml.ai/.
