Prior to that, I was a postdoc at the Quosseca lab in Polytechnique Montreal, where I worked with professor Gilles Pesant. I completed my PhD studies in the Machine Learning group at KU Leuven, under the supervision of professor Luc De Raedt and professor Tias Guns.
My main areas of interest are combinatorial optimization and probabilistic reasoning.
