I am an FSMP postdoctoral fellow at the logic group of the Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu, Université Paris Diderot  Paris 7.
My main research interest is model theory, more specifically Shelah's classification (stability, simplicity, NIP, NTP2, ...) and its applications to algebra, geometry, combinatorics and computer science.
