About Me


Hi there, I'm François,

I am a CNRS researcher, part of CosmoStat Laboratory at CEA Saclay, where I conduct my research at the intersection between cosmology and machine learning.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral follow at the Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics (BCCP) and with the Foundation of Data Analysis (FODA) institute at UC Berkeley. And before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the McWilliams Center for Cosmology at Carnegie Mellon University, where I was working with Prof. Rachel Mandelbaum on weak gravitational lensing measurements and systematics, and also interacted with both Statistics and Machine Learning departments here at CMU.

I did my PhD in the CosmoStat laboratory of CEA Saclay near Paris, France, under the supervision of Jean-Luc Starck. My PhD work focused on the application of sparse regularization techniques to solve ill-posed inverse problems in a cosmological context.

Before that, I received a Master's degree in fundamental physics from Paris-Sud University as well as a Master's degree in fundamental and applied mathematics from Paul Verlaine University in Metz (France). I am also a Supélec engineer, from one of France's top grandes écoles, where I specialized in Robotics and Interactive Systems.
