About Me

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics under the supervision of Elli Papaemmanuil. I am trying to delineate the heterogeneity of the hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues such as Acute Myeloid Leukemia from genetic and transcriptomic sequencing data using machine learning in order to develop personalized predictive models for diagnosis and targeted therapy.

I obtained my PhD at the Center for Computational Biology from the Ecole Mines Paristech under the supervision of Jean-Philippe Vert and Fabien Reyal. I was a fellow from the Ligue Nationale contre le Cancer, a French non-profit organization which funds research against cancer in France. During my thesis, I was working on the role of Epigenetics in particular the role of DNA Methylation in gene expression variation using Machine Learning.

I'm mostly interested in:
