I am currently assistant professor in statistics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, at Aalborg University in Denmark.

I received a PhD at the University of Nantes, Laboratoire de Mathématiques Jean Leray, in France under the supervision of Frédéric Lavancier MCF - HDR.

My main research interests are (mostly) in Point Process Theory and Spatial Statistics.

Interest

  • Over the course of my PhD, I have mainly been studying determinantal point processes, a class of process adapted to inhibitive (or regular, or repulsive) point patterns.

    During my postdoc, I studied different tools developed in Applied Topology to apply them in Spatial Statistics.

    General Interests: Point Processes, Determinantal Point processes, Asymptotic Theory, Parametric and Non Parametric Estimation, Applied Topology in Statistics.
