I am a French mathematician, CNRS Junior researcher working at Sorbonne Université (IMJ-PRG), and former student of the Ecole polytechnique. I am also a writer, published by Gallimard. My first novel Éducation tropicale was published in 2018 and was awarded the Albert Bernard prize.

My main topics of interest are : microlocal and semiclassical analysis, inverse problems, linear PDEs, rigidity problems in Riemannian geometry, Pollicott-Ruelle resonances.

I will teach next year (2021—2022) a course on geometric analysis on manifolds in the Master de Mathématiques Fondamentales de Jussieu.

I did my PhD. (title: On the rigidity of Riemannian manifolds) under the supervision of Colin Guillarmou (Sept. 2017 — Dec. 2019). I was funded by an AMX grant from the Ecole Polytechnique and also received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No. 725967). I was awarded the Prix solennel de thèse de la Chancellerie des Universités de Paris for my work. Here is a brief summary of my results.
