Welcome to my personal webpage!

About me

Since september 2016, I am doing a PhD, jointly at EDF Lab and TROPICAL team, a joint project of INRIA Saclay and CMAP, located at École polytechnique. This Ph.D. thesis is directed by Stéphane Gaubert, head of TROPICAL team, and by both Nadia Oudjane and Olivier Beaude at EDF Lab, in the department OSIRIS "Optimization, SImulation, RIsk and Statistics" located in Saclay, France.

My research focuses on the mathematical aspects of the decentralization of the electric network. This topic includes efficiency and equilibrium analysis, Smart Grids, renewable energies, flexible demand management, and mixes the mathematical fields of optimization, operations research and game theory.

In May and June 2018, I visited Professor Alejandro Jofre in the Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM) in Santiago, Chile.

I am a reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid .

I was the co-organizer of the workshop on "Network, Population and Congestion Games", NPCG19 , that took place in IHP, Paris 5, on April 16-17, 2019.

FORTHCOMING SCHEDULED CONFERENCES: FGS September, 17-20th, Nice and IEEE 58th CDC, 11-13 December, also in Nice.

PhD Defense scheduled on December 5, 2019 at the Ecole polytechnique.


Previous work

  • I worked in 2016 with Artelys company, Paris, France, on several projects: optimizing the hydraulic energy stocks on a multinational scale, on the optimal trading strategy on European electricity markets of a productor of intermitent renewable energy and finally on the design and optimal operation of a water network (pooling problem) in the framework of the MINO Challenge that we won.
  • In 2015, I worked at University of California, Davis, US, with Professor David L. Woodruff and Professor Roger J.-B. Wets . We developed a multi-stage stochastic programming model for the unit-commitment problem for electricity production with renewable energies and uncertainties. We implement an efficient algorithm and and describe a method for creating adapted stochastic programming scenarios.
