AI Research Scientist



I am a Research Scientist at Meta in the team of Alex Gramfort. I was a Postdoc Researcher supervised by Gabriel Peyré at ENS Ulm (CNRS). I obtained my PhD in deep learning for MRI reconstruction under the supervision of Philippe Ciuciu and Jean-Luc Starck at Parietal (Inria), NeuroSpin and Cosmostat (CEA).

PhD Student
CEA & Inria
Feb 2019 – Feb 2022 Paris, France
  • Designed and implemented new models for MRI reconstruction which allowed to me to secure the 2nd spot in the fastMRI 2020 reconstruction challenge organized by Facebook and NYU. This was featured in 2 articles in the specialized press (CEA mag' and Contact).
  • Used the public HPC Jean Zay to train neural networks in a distributed fashion with up to 8 nodes totalling 32 GPUs while working on 1Tb of MRI data. Co-created a user’s collaborative documentation.
  • Co-founded a lecture group focused on Deep Learning for students at NeuroSpin.
  • Analyzed and benchmarked the state-of-the-art in Deep Learning for MRI reconstruction.
  • Published 18 papers/abstracts in international peer-reviewed conferences/workshops/journals, among which IEEE TMI and ICLR (spotlight).
  • Co-supervised 2 interns: Sophie Starck on the topic of GANs for reconstruction, and Kevin Michalewicz on the follow-up of my work on Learnlets.
  • Peer-reviewed 19 submissions for scientific conferences and journals.
