Doctoral student in statistics at Columbia University (New York)

I chose to continue my studies with a PhD at Columbia University in order to develop a better knowledge of mathematics as applied in finance. It is recognized as one of the best diplomas in the field, particularly in the United States. The PhD will open doors for me in the academic and banking worlds.

Calculation parallelization - "Relying on rigor and the scientific community"

Fulfillment through research

Scientific research is a school of life. PhD students make their own contributions and develop their own particular approaches while relying on rigor and the scientific community. They thus develop their personalities and the human and intellectual qualities that are essential in order to choose and live a life that suits them. A PhD is internationally recognized as a supreme accomplishment.

Distributing resources on scientific grids

It's a question of effectively distributing scientific calculations on resources that belong to independent institutions. This poses the problem of distributed systems architecture and performance prediction.

A unique preparation

French industry tends to show a preference for PhD graduates who have previously graduated from a Grande Ecole. In the rest of the world, French Grande Ecole graduates are known for their exceptional mathematical training. Telecom ParisTech graduates are among the best prepared for research linked to IT. Moreover, we master data processing, our varied training generates innovation and our human training is very useful.

Extracting the melody from the music - "Take school subjects further"

Class of 2005

Thesis with the TSI (Signal and Image Processing) department of Telecom ParisTech.

An international diploma

Having availed of a scholarship to finish my engineering studies abroad, I realized that a PhD is the most valuable diploma internationally. In addition, I wanted to complete my scientific training and to go further with my studies, particularly mathematics applied to audio.

Music and mathematics

As part of my thesis I work on mathematical models applied to music. Specifically, given a piece of music with a singer, my aim is, on the one hand, to transcribe the singing into musical notes and, on the other, to physically separate it from the accompaniment.

Advanced-level training

Telecom ParisTech enabled me to discover a concrete and amusing application for the sciences we are taught. I received advanced-level training that gave me solid bases and the confidence to do my thesis. I'm now working in the school's IST department with a friendly and energetic team. Our work is recognized internationally and presented in reference journals and conferences.
