About Me

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Computational Science and Engineering at MIT, advised by Saurabh Amin. My research interests are in the applications of optimization methods and game-theoretic tools for assessing and improving the survivability of infrastructure networks to disruptions. Currently, we are working on modeling a class of cyber-physical reliability and security problems in infrastructure networks that can result in component disruptions and loss of network functionality.

I received my B.S. in Pure and Applied Mathematics from the University of Paris XI-Sud, 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 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.
