Prospective PhD students
If you are interested in doing your PhD under my supervision in our team in Paris, do not hesitate to send me a brief e-mail. Mentioning any of the following facts will guarantee a reply on my part:
- We know each other personally.
- You have discussed the matter with someone I'm bound to know of and they are supportive of your application.
- You have co-authored a published research paper in CS theory or a closely related area (please provide a link).
- You have participated in the onsite world finals of any of the following contests (or been close to this): ACM ICPC, TopCoder Open, Google Code Jam, Facebook Hacker Cup, IMO, IOI.
It is usually a good idea to get in touch at least 6-12 months before the envisaged starting date.
