Hey there! Welcome to my personal homepage!

Since November 2023, I am a Maîtresse de Conférences (~Assistant/Associate Professor) in Applied Mathematics in the Laboratoire Jean Kuntzmann at the Université Grenoble Alpes, in Grenoble (France).

Previously I have held postdoctoral positions:

I completed my PhD in Mathematics in 2016 at the Institut de Mathématiques de Marseille of Aix-Marseille Université under the supervision of Yves Aubry.

In my research, I'm interested in algebraic geometry over finite fields (algebraic curves with many rational points, function fields, elliptic curves, abelian surfaces, etc.), algebraic and computational number theory, and I enjoy when I can apply pure mathematical tools coming from these fields to areas at the intersection with computer science, such as 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): probably for the first time in France, we brought mathematics on the stage of big theaters in Paris, Marseille and Lyon for two unconventional musicals.

Since then, I have been playing my role of ambassador of mathematics in several ways and contexts. I strongly believe in the importance of dissemination activities and I will keep working to make mathematics inclusive, fun and humane.

Enjoy surfing through my website, where you can find more information about my research, my teaching, and my activities related to bringing science into the public eye!

All the best,
