News: I co-organize the 2nd edition of the workshop Statistics/Learning at Paris-Saclay at IHES (Bures-sur-Yvette) on January 19th, 2017.

I am professor at the Mathematics Department of University Paris Sud.
I coordinate with Marc Schoenauer the math-STIC program of the Labex Mathématique Hadamard.
I co-organize the SMILE (Statistical Machine Learning in Paris) seminar.
