Studies and past jobs

A few words about me:

I like to walk, travel, go camping around France and Europe, mainly by using hitch-hiking. I also like using new technologies, and enjoy design small games, or tiny pieces of software or web content (for instance some nice javascript hacks), geeky tutorials (e.g. about ga-beacon, GNU/Nano, Firefox, Sublime Text 3, git or more recently Visual Studio Code), or Linux command line tools (see this page for example).

A few words about this site:

I am working on this little website (currently, when I have the time, hoping it can be useful to someone. All the content of the website is (C) Lilian BESSON, and it is open source with the GPLv3 License. What means Open Source, explained with LEGO?. This site’s Google Analytics data suggest that some pages are indeed visited on a daily basis, so if you are here for something in particular, I hope you will not be disapointed (you can use this bug tracker to report any bug, or even to ask me anything).

2nd year of MSc : Master MVA

You can find here all the documents written for the MVA (2015-2016). I also worked on 6 small research projects, all published on my bitbucket, open-source under the MIT license.

For the 1st trimester (Fall 2015):

For the 2nd trimester (Spring 2016):

MSc research internship in 2016

« A theoretical study of steerable convolution operators, and possible applications to stochastic processes for images ».

I will be a research intern in the BIG/LIB team at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne), from April to August 2016, under the supervision of Julien Fageot and Michael Unser. Check out the git repository for my internship (my Master thesis is almost done) !

MSc research internship in 2013

« Towards modularity for planning and robot programs verification ».

I did a research internship for the third semester of my Maths MSc and CS MSc from 03 June to 09 August 2013.

I worked at UCL (University College of London), under the direction of Jules Villard (who quotes me on his new page, and Peter O’Hearn, about separation logic, planning in AI, and the study of modularity in those two domains.

My report (in English): rapportM1Info13.pdf, and my slides (in French): slidesM1Info13.pdf.

Mark:Jules gave me 19/20. I got the mark 17.7/20 from the Computer Science jury at ENS Cachan, and 18.50/20 from the Maths jury at ENS Cachan (september 2013).
