Hi there and welcome! I am going to be a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in January 2022 at the Inria Grenoble-Rhône-Alpes Research Centre where I am very fortunate to be mentored by Senior Researcher Florence Forbes, ARC DECRA Research Fellow and Senior Lecturer Hien Duy Nguyen, and Associate Researcher Julyan Arbel. I am currently a Ph.D. Student in Statistics and Data Science at Normandie Univ, UNICAEN, CNRS, LMNO, Caen, France since 2018 where I am very fortunate to be advised by Professor Faicel Chamroukhi. During my Ph.D. research, I am also very fortunate to collaborate with Professor Geoff McLachlan focusing in mixture models. I received a Visiting PhD Fellowship at the Inria Grenoble-Rhône-Alpes Research Centre, working with Senior Researcher Florence Forbes and Associate Researcher Julyan Arbel in the Statify team under a project LANDER (from September 2020 to January 2021).

A central theme of my research focuses on Data Science, at the interface of:

  • Statistical learning: supervised, unsupervised and visualization of high-dimensional data, model selection in clustering and regression for functional and heterogeneous data, statistical convergence for deep hierarchical mixtures of experts (MoE), approximate Bayesian computation.
  • Machine learning: deep generative models (variational autoencoders, generative adversarial networks), reinforcement learning.
  • Optimization: robust and effective optimization algorithms for deep neural network (stochastic gradient descent, Adam,…), deep hierarchical MoE (generalized expectation–maximization (EM) algorithm, EM algorithm, MM algorithm,…), DC algorithm.
  • Biostatistics: statistical learning and machine learning for large biological data sets (omics data), e.g., genomics, transcriptomics and proteinomics.
