I am a PhD student at the University of Warwick, and a visiting researcher at the Alan Turing Institute, working under the supervision of Prof. Theo Damoulas. I am part of the Oxford-Warwick CDT programme (OxWaSP). I am also a member of the Warwick Machine Learning Group and the DataSig team. My research focuses on developing methodologies, leveraging tools from rough path theory, to perform inference on large and complex datasets of multivariate sequential data.
Prior to joining OxWaSP, I completed an MSc in Machine Learning at Imperial College London, and obtained a Degree of Engineering at IMT Atlantique, in France.
I co-organise the Warwick Machine Learning Reading Group.
