Short biography

I graduated as an engineer in applied mathematics at UCLouvain, Belgium, in 2015, and received a PhD in mathematical engineering from UCLouvain in 2019, under the supervision of Julien Hendrickx and Pierre-Antoine Absil. My PhD thesis, entitled Data fitting on positive semidefinite matrix manifolds, was awarded the XXI Alston Householder prize. From 2020 to 2022, I was a postdoctoral researcher with the Mathematical Institute, at the University of Oxford, where I was funded by the National Physical Laboratory. From January to August 2022, I was an FNRS scientific collaborator at UCLouvain, in the mathematical engineering department, a subdivision of the ICTEAM institute. From September 2022, I am an academic faculty member of UCLouvain, working in the mathematical engineering department.
