Before starting my PhD at ETH Zurich, I graduated with a first-class honours in Mathematical Statistics from the University of Cambridge . I also studied one year at Sorbonne University with a Paris Graduate School of Mathematics scholarship from the Fondation Science Mathématique de Paris (FSMP). The FSMP fondation is an excellence network in mathematics and fundamental computer science in Paris, founded by CNRS, ENS, Univ. Pierre et Marie Curie, Univ. Paris-Diderot, and the 4 Mathematics Chairs of Collège de France, involving 5 Fields medalists, 20 members of Academy of Science, and many recipients of national and international prizes.
I obtained my Bachelor degree from the Univerité Libre de Bruxelles , graduating with the best results of my promotion.
My main interests include quantitative finance, algorithmic trading, machine learning, data mining, big data, time series analysis and applied statistics.

Solving problems allowed me to approach the activity of the researcher and to perceive mathematics as a living
science. Additionally, because their resolution often requires more than routine, problems develop the ability to
control new situations. During my academic career, I had the privilege to receive several sholarships and awards from leading academic insitutions and private companies.
I was teaching instructor for the following courses:
Please note that there is no exercise class on Friday 21st of December 2018. If you have questions concerning the course, feel free to write me an e-mail.
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ! Have a nice holiday full of MFF revision :)
