I am currently a post-doctoral student at IMPA (Brasil), under the direction of Roberto I. Oliveira. From 2013 to 2016, I was a PhD student at Université Paris Diderot, in the Laboratoire de Probabilités et Modèles Aléatoires (LPMA), under the supervision of Stéphane Boucheron and Justin Salez. My research interests are centered around

  • probability and statistics
  • concentration inequalities
  • urn models
  • random walks on graphs, mixing times

Here are my CV and the manuscript of my thesis.
