Welcome! I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Institut de Physique Théorique in Paris, where I work on problems at the interface of statistical physics and information processing in the group of Lenka Zdeborová. Currently, I am visiting the Information Initiative and the lab of Patrick Charbonneau at Duke University in Durham, NC, USA.

Research Interests

I am interested in understanding how to process large amounts of information efficiently.

One focus of my research is understanding what makes information processing in living organisms so efficient — after all, a human brain might not be behind the best Go player in the world anymore, but it still beats any supercomputer in terms of power consumption and efficiency by a few orders of magnitude.

Another theme of my work is to tackle challenging problems in learning and inference by turning concepts from the statistical physics of complex systems into algorithms.
