Pierre Marion

I am a postdoc researcher at EPFL under the supervision of Lénaïc Chizat since January 2024.

Before that, I was a PhD student at Sorbonne Université under the supervision of Gérard Biau and Jean-Philippe Vert. My main focus in PhD was the theory of deep learning, in particular of large-depth residual networks. For more information on my research activity, you can visit the Research page.

I am concerned by the environmental impact of the current organization of the research community, in particular by the unsustainable impact of flying to conferences. If you want to know more, please see this statement and/or reach out to help build more sustainable alternatives!
