I am currently a postdoc (non-permanent enseignant--chercheur contractuel) at Cergy Paris University.

**Research Interests**

On one hand I study quantum topology, namely topological invariants arising from quantized Lie algebras such as knot invariants, braid representations, quantum representations of mapping class groups.

On the other hand, I'm interested in homology of configuration spaces, related homology techniques in the context of local coefficients.

I have defended my PhD in December 2019, under the supervision of Professor F. Costantino, at Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse 3. It is entitled ``Homological interpretations for quantum invariants''.

Then I was a postdoc fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, Bonn, and then at the Institut de mathématiques de Bourgogne, in Dijon, France, and then at the University of Zürich, Swiss.
