I am a postdoctoral researcher at Inria center of Université de Lorraine in Nancy since January 2024. I am part of the Gamble team of Loria.

I did my PhD at Université Gustave Eiffel, working under the supervision of Alfredo Hubard and Arnaud de Mesmay. I defended my thesis on November 27, 2023. In my PhD, I studied graphs embedded on surfaces and their decompositions. You can find my PhD thesis here.
