I did a bachelor in Fundamental Mathematics that I complemented with a "Maitrise" (a bit like a Bsc Hons) at Université Nazi Boni in Burkina Faso, my home country, in 2015. I went on to complete a master in Mathematical Science at African Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Senegal in 2018. After spending 18 months as a Web developer, I decided to do a Msc in "Mathématiques, Vision, Apprentissage" (Math, Vision and Learning) at ENS Paris-Saclay in France in 2020.

Motivation: I am interested in the theory of optimization and machine learning and, their applications. I aim to develop theories in those fields and investigate how they can be used to build efficient systems.

Hobbies: I like football, very occasionally playing checkers and, small film making and video editing.
