About Me

I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in Computational Science and Engineering at MIT, advised by Professor Saurabh Amin. My research interests are in combinatorial optimization, game theory, and predictive analytics, with applications to service operations management and disaster logistics. I am currently focusing on developing strategies for improving the resilience of large-scale infrastructures — particularly, transportation and natural gas networks — in the face of correlated failures such as security attacks and natural disasters. My current projects include: (i) Strategic design of network inspection systems; and (ii) Analytics-based response operations under uncertainty.

I received my B.S. in Pure and Applied Mathematics from Paris-Sud University, my B.Eng. and M.Eng. from the École Centrale Paris, and my M.S. in Computation for Design and Optimization from MIT. I expect to graduate from my Ph.D. in June 2019. My Thesis committee members include Professors Saurabh Amin, Ali Jadbabaie, Patrick Jaillet, and Georgia Perakis.

During the summer of 2016, I worked as a research scientist intern at Amazon.com (Seattle) in the Supply Chain Optimization Technologies team. Using Machine-Learning techniques, I worked on predicting the fulfillment cost and developing a prototype to grant a fast and accurate access to future shipping cost estimates.

Next Fall, I will join the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech as Assistant Professor.
