I am a Ph.D. student in Optimization at CERMICS, Ecole des Ponts ParisTech. With my advisor Frédéric Meunier, we are working on a generalization of linear programming, known as colorful linear programming.

Colorful linear programming is a quite new subject in combinatorial optimization. Introduced in 1997 by Barany and Onn, this subject is related to linear programming, geometry, linear complementarity problem, complexity questions, algorithmic...

On this website you will find a short description of colorful linear programming, links to papers on that subject, my resume, and useful tools for the students in LM226 and LM372.
