My research interests span observational cosmology, astrophysics and signal processing. In particular, I develop innovative methods to optimally use cosmological dat sets and address topical fundamental questions like the properties of dark matter, dark energy, and neutrinos. You can look at my publications on ArXiv or my research page if you like to know about my exact research projects. Some of my talks/presentations are available on SpeakerDeck.
I am a Simons fellow (and NASA Einstein Fellow starting in Sept 2016) in the Center of Cosmology and Particle Physics at New York University. Before that I was in the Cosmology Group at University College London (UCL) where I completed my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Hiranya Peiris. I still contribute to the nice group website earlyuniverse.org. Prior to moving to UCL, I received a “Diplome d’Ingénieur” (engineering degree) jointly from University of Mons (Belgium) and Supélec (France) in the context of a T.I.M.E. scholarship. In parallel I also studied in University Orsay Paris Sud 11 where I received a M.Sc. in Physics in 2011. I did my master’s thesis in Operational Research about the sequential learning of additive decision models, with Prof Marc Pirlot (UMons) and Prof Vincent Mousseau (École Centrale Paris). In 2010 I did an internship in the Astrophysics Department of CEA Saclay where I worked with Dr Anais Rassat, Prof Alexandre Réfrégier and Prof Jean-Luc Starck.
