I’m a postdoc at Inria Sierra working with Alexandre d’Aspremont and Francis Bach. I received my PhD in computer science from KAUST, where I worked under the supervision of Peter Richtárik on optimization theory and its applications in machine learning. In 2020, I interned at Google Brain hosted by Nicolas Le Roux and Courtney Paquette. Prior to that, I obtained my double degree MSc diploma from École Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay and Paris-Dauphine, and a BSc from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.
My hobbies include squash, ultimate frisbee, and bouldering.

In a few days, I am travelling to Autrans, Vercors near Grenoble for the SICO conference dedicated to the 60th birthday of Anatoli Juditsky. The conference will feature a number of speakers working on optimization and statistics. As I did my master’s thesis at the University of Grenoble, I’m really happy to go there again after having been away for almost 5 years.
On the last day of the conference, I will give a talk about a new paper on Asynchronous SGD. The work that I will present is also going to appear online quite soon.
