Brief Vitae

I am a doctor in applied statistics. I defended my PhD which focuses on the statistical analysis of intracellular particle trajectories in December 2017. I graduated from the National Institute of Statistics and Data Analysis (ENSAI) in 2014. I also got a master degree in mathematical statistic from the university of Rennes 1 (2014). From 2009 to 2011, I studied mathematics and physics in preparatory classes (Lycée Chateaubriand, Rennes).

Research Topics

I am interested in statistics applied to biological problems. I studied spatial statistics to infer the abundance of marine species during my last year internship at AgroParisTech, the Paris Institute of technology for life, food and environmental sciences. During my PhD, I studied stochastic processes and particularly diffusion processes to model the motion of proteins inside the cell. I am also interested in statistical testing, including multiple testing. I developed a statistical test to classify the modes of motion of intracellular particles. I work on change point analysis as well. I designed a sequential method to detect the change of dynamic of proteins over time.
