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
My CV is available here.
In May 2014 I successfully defended my Masters thesis
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.
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.
