I am a postdoc in the group of Christian Lehn, at Ruhr University Bochum, since June 2024. Before, I was a PhD student in IRMAR (University of Rennes) and Institut Fourier (University of Grenoble Alpes), under the supervision of Michel Brion and Matthieu Romagny.

My research is mainly on algebraic group schemes over fields of positive characteristic.
Related subjects I am interested in are birational geometry and representation theory of reductive groups.

My first projects were about classifying non-reduced parabolic subgroups in small characteristics and on the study of isotrivial elliptic surfaces in positive characteristic.
Here is my CV (updated in April 2024).
