I'm currently working as a post-doc research fellow at Center for Complex Geometry in Daejeon, Korea.

Before this, I did my PhD in Université de Rennes 1 and Université Côte d'Azur under the supervision of Benoît Claudon and Andreas Höring. You can find my thesis here.

Even before that, I spent three years in the École normale supérieure

The theme of my interest, in the large sense is complex algebraic geometry. More specifically, I am interested in the classification problems of singular spaces using either algebraic methods or analytical methods.

A google-free personal page should be available in the (hopefully) near future. I will then migrate to that page.   (無理です)


There are at lease two people doing computer science with the same name as me. I apologise for being a mathematician.
