### About me

I am an SNSF Ambizione research fellow in the Testerman group. Before this, I was a research and teaching assistant in the group of Gerhard Hiss at the Lehrstuhl D für Mathematik in Aachen.I completed my PhD in Tours under the supervision of Cédric Lecouvey and Nicolas Jacon.

See my CV for more information.

### Research

#### Topics

My preferred research topics lie at the interface of representation theory and algebraic combinatorics. I am also interested in interactions with other areas of mathematics. Some themes I like to think about are:- (modular) representations of finite groups (Coxeter groups, finite groups of Lie type, etc),

- Hecke algebras, Cherednik algebras,

- Lie algebras, Kac-Moody algebras and associated quantum groups,

- crystal and canonical bases

- categorification,

- combinatorics on words, RSK correspondence,

- applications in probability (random walks, percolation, etc)

- enumerative combinatorics.

#### Research articles

See the list above. My research articles can be found on arXiv.#### PhD thesis

I have defended my PhD thesis entitled*Decomposition matrices for Ariki-Koike algebras and crystal isomorphisms in Fock spaces*in July 2014. You can find it online here.

#### Programming

I have written a few python programs for computing affine type A crystals using the combinatorics of Fock spaces. Also, I implemented the corresponding crystal isomorphisms, Heisenberg crystals, Mullineux-type maps and an affine Robinson-Schensted correspondence.For any particular request, do not hesitate to write me.
