I am a second year PhD student at IRIF in the Combinatorics team. My PhD advisor is Guillaume Chapuy. I am funded by the ERC Starting Grant CombiTop: New Interactions of Combinatorics through Topological Expansions.

With Justine Falque and Matthieu Piquerez, I organize the seminar Combinatoire et Interactions.

Research interests

I am trying to study the relations between combinatorial maps (that are graphs embedded on surfaces) and the KP/Toda hierarchies (integrable sets of differential equations). More generally, I'm interested in the enumeration of maps and related objects (constellations, Hurwitz numbers, …) via bijective and algebraic methods, as well as random properties of large maps.
