About Me

In September 2014 I started a cotutelle (joint degree) doctoral student at the University of Waterloo (in the Symbolic Computation Group at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science) and the École normale supérieure de Lyon (in the AriC project at the Laboratoire de l'Informatique du Parallélisme), supervised by George Labahn (Waterloo) and Bruno Salvy (ENS Lyon). I successfully defended my thesis in June 2017 (it will be available online soon).

My CV is available here.

In May 2014 I successfully defended my Masters thesis (available here) at Simon Fraser University in metro Vancouver.  I received my BSc Honours in Mathematics from SFU in June 2012, and spent three months as a research intern (under Alin Bostan and Manuel Kauers) at the INRIA-MSR joint lab located in the École Polytechnique, near Paris.  For the fall of 2012 I returned to Paris for research related to my Masters degree which was completed under the supervision of Marni Mishna.

Research Interests

I'm interested in enumerative combinatorics, symbolic computation, and complex analysis -- with a current focus on combining tools from computer algebra and the new area of analytic combinatorics in several variables to give effective tools for finding asymptotics of D-finite functions.
