I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof. Patrick Rebeschini on implicit regularisation. My research focus is on fast optimization algorithms in machine learning, in particular, non-convex optimization for inverse problems, such as Robust PCA, compressed sensing, and optimization on Riemannian manifolds.

Previously, I was a visiting lecturer and a postdoctoral researcher at UCLouvain hosted by Prof. Pierre-Antoine Absil and Prof. Julien Hendrickx. I completed my DPhil in the Numerical Analysis Group at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Prof. Jared Tanner, where I worked on low-rank plus sparse matrix sensing with applications in multispectral imaging and remote sensing.
