I am currently a NSF post-doc in the mathematics department of Columbia University working on probability theory and mathematical physics.
I obtained my PhD in 2018 from École Normale Supérieure in Paris, working under the supervision of
Rémi Rhodes and Vincent Vargas.

CV. Research interests
My interests lie at the interface between probability theory, mathematical physics, and geometry. In particular I am currently studying the Liouville conformal field theory. This field theory allows us to understand random geometry in two-dimensions: it has strong links with many canonical two-dimensional random objects such as the Gaussian free field, Gaussian multiplicative chaos, Schramm-Loewner evolutions, and random planar maps. Liouville theory is also a conformal field theory (CFT) which means it is integrable and we can use the framework of CFT developed by Belavin, Polyakov, and Zamolodchikov (1984) to perform many explicit computations.
