I am currently Maître de Conférence at Université Paris-Sud in the Topology and dynamics team. My research field is operator algebras. I am particulary interested in the study of discrete quantum groups, their structure and properties. I am also a member of the ANR projects AODynG and Noncommutative Analysis on Groups and Quantum Groups.

Here is my CV in english and in french.
