Academic and work experience

I am interested in the intersection of machine learning and social science. I worked mainly in the private sector. I want to go deeper into some research problems I saw and have the freedom to do so.

Impact I hope to have in my field and the world

I want to develop statistical models that could improve the credit risk assessment of a company or a consumer.

Interests and hobbies

I am passionate about video games and soccer. I combined those two passions in an experience: I was a professional gamer in one of the best French eSport teams.
