Past and present position

Since 2018, I work at the department of computer science of École des Mines de Nancy and at the LORIA laboratory, in the team Gamble joint with INRIA. Before that, I worked at Université Paris Est Marne-la-Vallée (2013-18), at Inria Nancy (2005-13) and at TU Eindhoven (2004-05).

Here is a short cv.

Research area

I work in algorithms and discrete mathematics, more precisely:
  • Combinatorial convexity and topology, homology and intersection patterns
  • Geometric hypergraphs, excluded patterns and VC dimension
  • Geometric probabilities, random polytopes and smoothed complexity
  • Line geometry, incidence geometry and models of imaging systems
I participate to ANR Aspag (2018-21) and ANR Minmax (2020-23).
