Popularization activities


Very passionate about scientific popularization, I am:

  • founder member and secretary of the Pi day association who wants to promote and communicate Mathematics to the general public. The Pi day association has been awarded the D'Alembert prize in 2016 by the French Mathematical Society (Société Mathématique de France.) Within this context, I coordinated the organisation of several big events in 2015 (Journée de π 2015), 2016 (Journée de π 2016) and 2017 (Tournée de π).

  • member of GDS Audimath (Groupement de Services : Autour de la Diffusion des Mathématiques), a network created by the Institut National Sciences Mathématiques et de leurs Interactions (INSMI) of CNRS who wants to help the academic community in developing activities of populazion of Mathematics for the general public.



Past events

I took part in the organization of the following events:
  • Treize Minutes Jeunes Chercheurs, April 26 2017, Alcazar (300 people), Marseille.
    Night of multidisciplinary conferences by young researchers, organized by a group of Ph.D students of Aix-Marseille Université.
