Hi! I'm Victor. I'm a postdoc at EPFL in the INDY Lab, where I obtained my Ph.D. in Machine Learning under the supervision of Patrick Thiran and Matthias Grossglauser.

My research revolves around the development of machine learning algorithms and statistical models to study human behavior within social systems in general, and political systems in particular. I have drawn from the literature on discrete-choice 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.
