I am currently a PostDoc in the Algebra group led by Cordian Riener in the department of Mathematics and Statistics in Tromsø.
I defended my PhD in December 2017, I was in the number theory team of the Institut de Mathématiques de Bordeaux and the "graph and optimization" team of the LaBRI, under the supervision of Christine Bachoc and Arnaud Pêcher.
In 2018, I was a PostDoc at ICERM, Brown University for the semester program Point Configurations in Geometry, Physics and Computer Science.

Research
My research concerns both theoretical and computational questions in several topics, ranging from number theory to polynomial optimization, going through discrete geometry, coding theory and real algebraic geometry. I am particularly excited by questions involving lattices and sphere packings.Preprints & Publications
