Etienne Bamas’ webpage

Hello and welcome to my webpage! I am a post-doctoral fellow at the ETH AI Center, mostly working in the groups of Prof. Rico Zenklusen and Prof. Roger Wattenhofer. I obtained my PhD in 2023 from EPFL, where I was fortunate to be advised by Ola Svensson. I am broadly interested in Theoretical Computer Science with a focus on Combinatorial Optimization, sometimes in connection with Machine Learning. Before joining EPFL, I completed my bachelor and master in France at Ecole polytechnique and the Parisian Master of Research in Computer Science. My master thesis was advised by Louis Esperet.

If you would like to contact me, please feel free to do so!
