I am Edouard Oyallon, an Assistant Professor at the *Centre de Vision Numérique (CVN) de CentraleSupelec*. Prior to it, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the *INRIA Lille*, where I worked in particular with Michal Valko. I obtained my PhD in October 2017 from the *Département Informatique de l'Ecole Normale Supérieure* under the supervision of Prof. Stéphane Mallat. I graduated from the *ENS Cachan, campus de Ker Lann*. I define myself as an applied mathematician, with coding skills.

I hate black box pipelines, and to be concise, the type of questions I try to solve is not “how to learn new deep features that discriminate this image as a dog”, but simply “why is your network understanding that this signal is a dog”. Answering such questions could help to make fundamental advances in science in a context where too much work is dedicated to techniques that give incremental improvements on standard datasets.

Recently, I am interested in the theoritical understanding of the deep reinforcement learning techniques that have led to breakthrough results in solving strategy games such as Go.

Feel free to send me any emails to discuss my work at __edouard[dot]oyallon[at]centralesupelec[dot]fr__.

**News:**
Feb 2018, I am grateful to have received a GPU donation from NVIDIA.

Jan 1st 2018, I will join the CVN at CentraleSupelec as an Assistant Professor.

Nov 1st 2017, I will join the SequeL team at Lille, to work in particular with Michal Valko and Matteo Pirotta.
