As a maths graduate from ENS de Lyon, I am passionate about mathematics, IT, linguistics and design.

I have a solid background in mathematics, specialising in probability theory and quantum information theory. Additionally, I have professional experience in building modern user interfaces and developing backends for business applications and custom e-shops.

I am also very interested in programming paradigms, data science and web development.

Enjoy working in a team and can also work independently.

Diploma of ENS, Mathematics

Four years of study to obtain the Diploma of ENS:

## 1st year

## 2nd year (1st year of Master)

## 3rd year (2nd year of Master)

- 1st year: obtained the BSc in Mathematics
- 3rd year: obtained the Msc in Advanced Mathematics
- Final year: obtained the Diploma of ENS

During the final year, I did two research internships at TUM (Munich, Germany) and then at ICJ (Villeurbanne Lyon, France), where I learned higher-order quantum information theory (theoratical mathematics) and developed some results with probabilistic methods and representation theory.

Full-stack developer

May 2021 - Present

Smartfire - Lyon, France

I have experience in developing and maintaining backends for several large e-shop projects involving payment, order/cart/stock management, online signature, and stock migration. By implementing different coding principles and paradigms and introducing appropriate integration testing, I improved code quality, resulting in over 90% reduction in bugs, faster development, and significant improvement in team morale. Additionally, I conducted code reviews to enhance the team's understanding of programming languages and overall code quality. I also efficiently understood and refactored complex code bases, reducing bugs and improving code readability, making further development easier.

Furthermore, I built modern user interfaces for business applications and showcase sites, ensuring a seamless user experience. I also contributed to the UI and backend development of the company's online Integrated Development Environment (IDE) platform.

Weak approximate higher-order unitary designs

March 2020 - July 2020

with Guillaume Aubrun, Institut Camille Jordan (ICJ) - Lyon, France

I developed a mathematical framework (hierarchical structure) for higher-order (HO) objects in quantum information theory, such as HO twirling channels, HO designs and HO diamond norms, and generalised a super twirling channel approximation theorem to the whole quantum hierarchical structure using unitary group representation theory.

Super channels, higher-order quantum theory

October 2019 - March 2020

with Dr. Michael M. Wolf, Mathematics Centre M5, TUM - Munich, Germany

I first learned the basics of quantum mechanics and quantum channels, then studied super quantum channels and higher-order quantum theory.

I generalised common notions such as restriction, purification, and entropy to higher-order quantum objects, and also established the generalised purification theorem.

Eigenvalues of polynomials in random permutation matrices and their tensor product

April 2019 - July 2019

with Alice Guionnet, UMPA - Lyon, France

I studied the spectrum convergence of certain operators involving tensor products of random permutation matrices. In particular, I studied non-backtracking operator theory and trace methods.

Additionally, I had discussions with Charles Bordenave, the co-author of an article I read, and was later invited to a conference he organised at CIRM.

Random quantum circuits

May 2018 - June 2018

with Guillaume Aubrun, Institut Camille Jordan (ICJ) - Lyon, France

I studied papers about local random quantum circuits and unitary designs, and learned Haar measures, partial traces and path coupling techniques for random walks on unitary operators (probability theory).

Quantum spectrum estimation

May 2020

Quantum seminar, Lyon Quantum Information Group

I gave a talk on the spectrum estimation problem in quantum information theory with some representation theory. Here are the slides for the talk.

Dissemination of mathematics in secondary school

April 2018

At Collège Gabriel Rosset, organised by MathàLyon

I guided secondary school students in several hands-on mathematics experiments, with an aim to raise their interest in mathematics: helping them find solutions on their own, showing them mathematics can be interesting and fun, etc. It was a meaningful experience for me.

Here is a report (in French).

FISH UP Dictionary of Array

July 2020 - Present

Best website to learn and practice Array

Array is a free of license, open-source, shape-based Chinese input method, which is extremely easy to learn and is also the fastest free Chinese input method.

I built the best website to teach and promote Array by offering:

- Best Array dictionary
- Best Chinese typing practice website
- Best Array tutorial... to name a few

Website available in English, French and traditional Chinese (Vue.js/python).

2k-3k visitors per month, and received many words of thanks and appreciation.

Very well ranked on Google, first result in Chinese language.
