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. Since January 2022, I am an FNRS scientific collaborator at UCLouvain, in the mathematical engineering department, a subdivision of the ICTEAM institute.
