I'm a research associate in Applied Mathematics at Imperial College, working with Dr. Ory Schnitzer. I received a Bachelor's and Master's degree from Ecole Polytechnique in 2014, and a Ph.D in Applied Mathematics from Ecole Normale Superieure in 2017.

My research focuses on applying layer potentials and asymptotic analysis techniques to tackle complex wave propagation problems. In particular, I am currently interested in studying a p.d.e eigenvalue problem, namely the plasmonic eigenvalue problem, which arises in several nanophotonics applications.
