About me

I am currently a CNRS researcher at LIMOS in Clermont-Ferrand. Previously, I was a Simons Junior Fellow at Columbia University in NYC. I did my PhD research at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica in Amsterdam under Daniel Dadush and received my doctorate from the Mathematical Institute of Utrecht University.

I study practical algorithms for (mixed integer) linear programming. These mathematical optimization tools are extensively used in industry and academia, and my research focusses on explaining why the algorithms in popular solvers perform very well in practice, much better than the theory of worst case analysis predicts. Related to this, I am interested in geometric and combinatorial questions about convex polyhedra. For a short introduction to my work, check out my Rising Star talk which I gave during STOC 2021.

Besides research, I have made a browser plugin to use LaTeX on the chat website Slack. It can be installed in Firefox or Chrome, and source code is available on Github. The plugin has over 3500 active users.
