About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Talgo (Theory, ALgorithms, Graphs, and Optimization) team at the Computer Science Department of École normale supérieure, Paris, France. I am interested in algorithms on strings, small-space algorithms and data structures, streaming algorithms, property testing algorithms, lower bounds, and communication complexity.
