I am currently a post-doc at the Institut de Physique Théorique, CEA Saclay, where I started working with Jérémie Bouttier. I am a member of the PIICQ group (Probabilité Intégrable et Intégrabilité Classique et Quantique) and of the ANR JCJC project RESYST (REflected Stochastic SYSTems).

From November 2021 to October 2022 I was post-doc at Institut de Recherche en Mathématique et Physique, Université Catholique de Louvain-la-Neuve with Tom Claeys.

Previously, I completed my PhD in Mathematics under the supervision of Mattia Cafasso and Marco Bertola in a cotutelle program between Université d'Angers and Concordia University.

Research interests

My research activity is focused on the interactions between integrable systems and integrable probability models. So far, this involved the followig subjects: classical integrable systems, KdV equation and related integrable PDEs, Painlevé equations, random matrix theory, determinantal point processes, orthogonal polynomials, isomonodromy deformations, cluster algebras, Riemann-Hilbert problems, random partitions models, random maps.
