In September 2016, I was appointed to the organising committee of the Rencontres Inria—LJLL, one of the main seminar series for scientific computing and numerical analysis in Paris.

In September 2015, I joined the research group SERENA at INRIA Paris to work with Martin Vohralík and Alexandre Ern.

In June 2015, I was awarded the 17th IMA Leslie Fox Prize in Numerical Analysis, along with Alex Townsend from MIT.
