Pierre C. Bellec

I am an Assistant Professor of statistics at Rugers, the state university of New Jersey. I obtained my PhD in 2016 from ENSAE ParisTech, where I was fortunate to have Alexandre Tsybakov as my PhD advisor. My research interests include aggregation of estimators, shape restricted regression, confidence sets, high-dimensional statistics and concentration inequalities.
