My current position is "chargé de recherche" of CNRS in the applied math and computer science department of Grenoble University (LJK - U.M.R. 5523), where I am the scientific leader of the DAO team.

I did a part of my studies at ENS Cachan where in particular I prepared the "agrégation". In Nov. 2005, I defended my Ph.D. in Optimization in front of an impressive committee, before leaving to Cornell for a post-doc. Details on my Ph.D. dissertation are here. I came back to Grenoble as research hosted by the research team BIPOP of the Grenoble unit of INRIA. I recently prepared my HdR, and I feel lucky to have an extremely good and nice committee.
