I am a PostDoc researcher in the parietal team @ INRIA Saclay, since spring 2018, working on convolutional dictionary learning.
My research interests touch several areas of Machine Learning, Signal Processing and High-Dimensional Statistics. In particular, I have been working on Convolutional Dictionary Learning, studying both their computational aspects and their possible application to pattern analysis. I am also interested in theoretical properties of learned optimization algorithms such as LISTA.
I did my PhD under the supervision of Nicolas Vayatis and Laurent Oudre, in the CMLA @ ENS Paris-Saclay. My PhD focuses on convolutional representations and their applications to physiological signals. I am also involved in open-source projects such as joblib or loky, for parallel scientific computing.

- Deadlock free implementation: one of the major concern in standard multiprocessing and concurrent.futures libraries is the ability of the Pool/Executor to handle crashes of worker processes. This library intends to fix those possible deadlocks and send back meaningful errors.
- Consistent spawn behavior: All processes are started using fork/exec on POSIX systems. This ensures safer interactions with third party libraries.
- Reusable executor: strategy to avoid respawning a complete executor every time. A singleton pool can be reused (and dynamically resized if necessary) across consecutive calls to limit spawning and shutdown overhead. The worker processes can be shutdown automatically after a configurable idling timeout to free system resources.
