I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Numerical analysis group.


Research interests

  • Polynomial eigenvalue problem
  • Tropical algebra
  • Scaling algorithms

PhD Thesis

Scaling Algorithms and Tropical Methods in Numerical Matrix Analysis: Application to the Optimal Assignment Problem and to the Accurate Computation of Eigenvalues, Centre de Mathematique Appliqué, Ecole Polytechnique & INRIA Saclay, France (Dec. 2007- Sep. 2011) (pdf)  Supervisor: Stéphane Gaubert.


I have developed a MATLAB code which computes the eigenvalues of a matrix polynomial by using "Tropical scaling". More details can be found in Tropical scaling of polynomial matrices . To download the code click here.
