New preprint on sparse random graphs using exchangeable random measures (extended version)

Short bio

Since September 2015, I am an Associate Professor in the department of Statistics and a tutorial Fellow at Keble College, University of Oxford. From September 2013 to August 2015, I was a Marie Curie Research Fellow in the department of Statistics at the University of Oxford. From 2008 to 2013, I was a Research Scientist (Chargé de Recherche) at INRIA Bordeaux. I completed my Ph.D. in Information Engineering at the University of Lille I in 2006, and spent two years as a post-doctoral researcher in the departments of Computer Science and Statistics at the University of British Columbia (2006-2008).
