About Me

I am currently doing a PostDoc in Pierre Ganty's group at the IMDEA Software Institute.

I am interested in verification, language theory, distributed computation and Petri nets, and more generally in mathematical reasoning in a computer science setting. You can find a list of my publications on dblp, Google Scholar.


I completed my Ph.D. in 2023 under the supervision of Javier Esparza at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), in the Chair for Foundations of Software Reliability and Theoretical Computer Science. I worked on parameterized verification of distributed systems, Petri net reachability and population protocols in the context of the ERC-supported project PaVeS.

I obtained my Master’s degree in Computer Science from the École Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay (formerly ENS Cachan) in 2018. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Fundamental and Applied Mathematics from the Université Paris-Sud (formerly Université d’Orsay). More information on my academic background can be found in my curriculum vitae.
