Short Bio

I'm currently assistant professor at Telecom ParisTech and scientific consultant for the CEA Neurospin brain imaging center. My work is on statistical machine learning, signal and image processing, optimization, scientific computing and software engineering with primary applications in brain functional imaging (MEG, EEG, fMRI). Before joining Telecom ParisTech, I worked at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Harvard in Boston, and for five years at INRIA in the Parietal Project Team and the Athena Project Team. I am also an active member of the Center for Data Science at Université Paris-Saclay.



Address: 46, rue Barrault, 75013 Paris


  • scikit-learn - A Python project for machine learning.
  • openmeeg - C++ package for low-frequency bio-electromagnetism including the EEG/MEG forward problem. OpenMEEG implements the Symmetric BEM which has shown to provide very accurate solutions. Some features: parallel processing, Python Bindings, Matlab integration with Fieldtrip and BrainStorm.
  • MNE - A complete package to process EEG and MEG data: forward and inverse problems (MNE, dSPM, MxNE), stats, time-frequency analysis.
