I’m a High Energy Physicist at IJCLab, CNRS/IN2P3 and Université Paris-Saclay, currently working for the ATLAS experiment at CERN on the Large Hadron Collider.

After a dozen of year designing and implementing many pieces of the ATLAS experiment software, a chance meeting in 2013 with a Machine Learning (what was this?) Computer Scientist decided a new path in my career : develop the interface between High Energy Physics (and science in general) and Machine Learning (or Artificial Intelligence).

My current and past research topics are described below ( please check the Publications tab for references)

Current research topics

  • Simulation Based Inference 
  • Machine Learning for fast particle Tracking at the Large Hadron Collider
  • Generator models for fast detector simulation
  • Using an OPU for event classification
  • Uncertainty aware training

Past research topics

  • evidence for Higgs to tau tau in ATLAS (MMC)
  • software developments for ATLAS
  • B physics in ALEPH
  • ALEPH detector alignment
