Since March 2024, I am a postdoctoral researcher at Radboud University in Nijmegen, Netherlands, under the supervision of Wieb Bosma and Henk Don.

Between October 2020 and February 2024, I was a FNRS Research Fellow in the discrete mathematics team of the University of Liege, Belgium, where I did my PhD thesis under the supervision of Julien Leroy.

Before that, I obtained a bachelor and a master degree in mathematics, with a professional focus in computer science, at the University of Liege, Belgium.

Research topics

My PhD thesis is focused on (eventually) dendric words — a generalization of Sturmian words — and their link with morphisms. I also work on string attractors — a combinatorial tool related to data compression.

More generally, I am interested in combinatorics on words, with some frequent incursions in adjacent domains such as dynamical systems, numeration systems or group theory.
