My interests lie at the interface between mathematics and physics, more precisely in the field of combinatorial statistical physics.

Some keywords : random maps, two-dimensional quantum gravity, integrability, random trees, dimer models, loop gases...

All my **publications** are available online :

- List of my articles on the arXiv
- List of my publications in the IPhT database
- My doctoral thesis on TEL (in French)

You can get an idea of my work by looking at the files from some of my **talks**. First, some general talks on my main subject, random maps:

- a general seminar intended for a math-oriented audience, given in several places:
*Distances in random maps and discrete integrability* - a talk (in French, but with pictures) for non-specialists about the history of the field, given in 2013 at the CEA Theory Forum:
*Cartes aléatoires et gravité quantique*(abstract, conference webpage) - a talk (still in French with pictures) given at the Journées de Physique Statistique 2014 :
*Quelques aspects des cartes aléatoires*(conference webpage)

Then, talks on more specific subjects:

*Steep tilings and sequences of interlaced partitions*, Integrability and Representation Theory seminar, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 25 September 2014 (abstract)*The nested loop approach to the O(n) model on random maps*, Quantum Gravity in Paris, Orsay, 22 March 2013 (abstract, conference webpage)*Planar maps and continued fractions*, ESF Conference on Combinatorics and Analysis in Spatial Probability, Eindhoven, 16 December 2010 (abstract, conference webpage)*Statistics of geodesics in large quadrangulations*, Workshop on Combinatorics and Statistical Physics, Vienne, 26 May 2008 (abstract, conference webpage)*Des cartes planaires eulériennes aux arbres étiquetés : les mobiles*, Groupe de travail Arbres et Chemins, Bordeaux, 25 November 2004 (abstract, conference webpage)

I was an associate professor at the Department of mathematics and its applications of the École normale supérieure from 2012 to 2016. There I managed the math-physics first-year curriculum. During the academic year 2015-2016, I ran a reading group on *Enumerative combinatorics* (1st year) and a working group on *Random maps and their local limits* (2nd year). From 2012 to 2015, I gave together with Guilhem Semerjian a course on *Rigourous aspects of equilibrium statistical mechanics* (L3 level -- more info and material on the course pages: 2014-2015, 2013-2014, 2012-2013).

I have given preceptorships (*tutorats*) in mathematics at ESPCI from 2009 till 2012. Some subjects (in French) : *Transformations conformes et hydrodynamique*, *Marches aléatoires et marchés financiers*.

You can download my academic CV (as of January 2017).
