I am Postdoc (since November 2017) at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. I am part of the Advanced Network Science Initiative (ANSI) team under Marc Vuffray and Michael (Misha) Chertkov supervision.
I was trained in theoretical physics with a particular focus on statistical physics of out-of-equilibrium system and nonlinear dynamics. I did my PhD from October 2014 to September 2017 at Laboratoire Dieudonné, Université Côte D'Azur. My thesis advisor was Julien Barré. You can find my PhD thesis here.
