About me

Since October 2021, I am a PhD student at LaBRI, Université de Bordeaux, under the supervision of Nathanaël Fijalkow and was also under the supervision of Laurent Simon until April 2022. I graduated from ENSEIRB-MATMECA in September 2021 with a major in AI. Mentor of Clara Marcille.

Feel free to send me a mail just to chat about some interesting work, not necessarily yours!

Research Interests

  • Program Synthesis, Code Generation
  • Comparative performance of algorithm performances or managing performance variability
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Machine Learning tools that can help reduce environmental impact
  • Honestly everything’s interesting there’s just not enough time

  • June 17: will give a talk on “Code Generation and Program Synthesis: where are we?” at a regional AI event
  • July 5: will be at the opening meeting of the LLM4Code project
  • Actively participating to the working group on psychosocial risks in my lab
  • June - July: Chaimaa Radiousse is working with me on estimating mixtures of stable distributions
  • May - July: An intern Maxence is working on multi agent reinforcement learning in order to balance board games supervised by Guillaume Lagarde, Gabriel Bathie and I.
  • March - July: Baptiste Mouillon is working on fast approaches for LTL learning with Nathanaël Fijalkow, Pierre Vandenhove, Gabriel Bathie and I.
