Oxford, UK posts

Hi ! I’m a student at the MSc Computer Science, University of Oxford, specializing in Machine Intelligence and Statistical Learning. You will find on this website blog posts for personal/group projects, along with gitlab repositories.

If you are passionate about music, you can find me on SoundCloud (mainly electronic music with synths & samplers) or check this amazing map of musical genres. If you ended up here randomly, you can still be interested in this post about awesome YouTube channels.

In 2015-2018, I was a student at Ecole polytechnique, Palaiseau. I worked on some key ideas for autonomous cars: Convolutional networks for pedestrian detection, and Reinforcement Learning for simulated cars. I worked on a research project about Minimum Enclosing Balls with Amaury Sabran (supervised by Pr Frank Nielsen, LIX). We extended theoretical convergence & complexity results on the Frank-Wolfe algorithm, focusing on robustness to outliers and Bregman divergences (blog post here). We also made a video/post about the applications of robust Minimum Enclosing Balls in Machine Learning.

During a 4-month internship at Institut Pasteur (Paris), a cutting-edge research institute in biology, I explored the subject of using Auto Encoders for Protein Design.

Please be sure to contact me if you have any suggestion, or if you are interested in working on these topics.
