A few words

I am an Associate Professor (Professeur des Universités) at the Grenoble Institute of Technology (Grenoble INP). Before moving to Grenoble, I was assistant professor at the University of Bordeaux on an INRIA Chair of Excellence and prior to that, I was a permanent research staff member at the IBM Zurich Research Lab. I hold an Engineering Degree in Computer Sciences and Applied Mathematics (ISIMA, France) and I did my Ph.D. in Operations Research at the Swiss Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) under the direction of Professor Thomas M. Liebling. Before joining IBM, I was a post-doc in the department of mathematics at MIT under the supervision of Prof. Michel Goemans. My research is in Combinatorial Optimization, Integer Programming, Polyhedral Combinatorics and their Applications.
