Hey there! Welcome to my personal homepage!
I'm currently a visiting assistant professor at the Université de la Polynésie Française, in Tahiti, where I work within the team GAATI (Algebraic Geometry and Applications to Information Theory).
Previously (August 2017- August 2020) I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of South Florida, in Tampa, under the mentorship of Jean-François Biasse.
In my research, I'm interested in arithmetic geometry over finite fields (algebraic curves with many rational points, function fields, elliptic curves, abelian surfaces, etc.), pure and computational number theory and their applications in cryptography (e.g. isogeny-based cryptography) and coding theory (e.g. algebraic geometric codes).
Am I obsessed with $\pi$? Maybe... or maybe it's because I'm also a founding member of the Pi Day Association. The Pi Day Association, which works to promote and communicate mathematics to the general public, has been awarded the d'Alembert prize in 2016 by the French Mathematical Society (Société Mathématique de France). Within this context, I organized several big math outreach events in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
All the best,
PS: I am on the job market for the academic year 2021/2022!
