# Théo Dumont

PhD student in mathematics at LIGM (Paris).

I am a PhD student in optimal transport at the LIGM (Université Gustave Eiffel) under the supervision of François-Xavier Vialard, Théo Lacombe and Virginie Ehrlacher. Just before that, I worked with Philipp Harms (NTU Singapore) and Klas Modin (Chalmers University) on some topics related to the infinite-dimensional geometry of optimal transport.

My interests span the theory of optimal transport (OT), infinite-dimensional Riemannian geometry and machine learning, and I am passionate about the interplay between those fields. I am currently working on the geometry of several OT-related problems, such as Gromov–Wasserstein, and on the geometry of neural networks. I am always happy to discuss, so feel free to contact me!
