Hello ! I am Lilian Besson, a former student in Mathematics and Computer Science at ENS de Cachan. I am a passionate programmer, open-source enthusiast and young researcher in machine learning, learning
theory and cognitive radio. I also love to cook and meet people, to travel and exchange, to bike or hike.
👨 I use the he/him pronouns.
From August 2019, I am now a junior professor (agrégé) at ENS Rennes, in charge of the class preparing the "agrégation" national exam, with a major in mathematics and a minor in computer science, level M2, and in charge of lectures for introduction and advanced algorithms.
I am also an associate researcher with the PANAMA team at IRISA and INRIA Rennes. My research interests lie between sequential learning, tensor decomposition, cognitive radio, Python and open source software, and other directions.
Between October 2016 and November 2019:
- I was pursuing my PhD at CentraleSupélec (SCEE team, IETR lab) in Rennes (France), with Christophe Moy and Émilie Kaufmann (CNRS & Inria, SequeL team, CRIStAL lab, at Lille). My PhD is on multi-players multi-arms bandits models applied to radio-telecommunication, especially Internet-of-Things problems. I defended in November, and I now hold a PhD in telecommunications. My PhD thesis is here and the slides used for my defense are there.
- And I am teaching theoretical computer science at ENS Rennes (for a class preparing for the "agrégation" national exam, level M2) and ENSAI (complexity and calculabilty, level L3).
