About me

I am an AI resident in the NYC language group at Google AI. I am interested in building robust general-purpose representations of language for transfer learning.

Previously, I was a research scientist at BenevolentAI and did a MS in Data Science at New York University, conducting research in the ML² group at CILVR, working with Sam Bowman. I have also worked on Computer Vision for Medical Imaging with Krzysztof Geras and Kyunghyun Cho.

Before that, I did a double degree in France between HEC Paris (Management) and ENSAE ParisTech (Statistics). I also did internships at Morgan Stanley, Eleven Strategy and Younited Credit.
