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.
