I am currently a PhD student in the CSAIL Computer Graphics group at MIT where I work under the supervision of Prof. Fr├ędo Durand. My research interests include computational photography, computer vision and machine learning. Prior to joining MIT, I completed my undergraduate studies in France at Ecole Polytechnique with a focus on Applied Mathematics.
