Hi! I'm Victor. I'm a Ph.D. student in machine learning at EPFL in the INDY Lab, advised by Patrick Thiran and Matthias Grossglauser.

My research revolves around the development of machine learning and data mining algorithms to study human behavior within social systems in general, and political systems in particular. I have drawn from the literature on discrete choice models and latent factor models to develop interpretable models of collaborative and competitive processes, such as peer-production, sports, voting, and law-making. I built Predikon and Kickoff.ai.

I was the President of Swiss Youth for Climate. Climate change is the challenge of our generation. I believe that the power of machine learning can enhance mitigation of climate change and help us adapt to it. To understand people's perception of their carbon footprint, I built Climpact.

Here are links to my publications, résumé, and recent activities.
