I am a Machine Learning PhD student supervised by Prof. Angelika Steger at the Institute of Theoretical Computer Science, ETH Zurich. I received my bachelor in applied mathematics from École polytechnique (Palaiseau, France) in 2014 and my Master's degree from ETH Zürich in computer science in 2016, after which I worked for 3 years at Google Zurich as a Software Engineer. My interest resides at the intersection between meta learning, a specific class of neural network parametrization called hypernetworks, and reinforcement learning. I am also interested in pushing the boundaries of Deep Reinforcement Learning with a focus on computational efficiency drawing inspiration from bounded rationality in humans, as well as shedding light on inductive biases induced by deep learning models in general.
