As Professor of Statistics at Ensai (, a top graduate school for Statistics and Data Science, and member of the research Lab CREST (, I have been working on various topics in Statistics, several of them related to the S-Training project. My work includes the development of predictive models using dimension reduction approaches, of novel models for time-to-event analysis, non-stationary time series and functional data. The latter topic is particularly important for analyzing sports data, namely sensors data, images and longitudinal records. I have a long and rich experience of collaboration with other academic researchers and companies for applying my methodological expertise to real data problems. Since January 2020, I’m Associated Editor for the Journal of American Statistical Association.
