Adrien Hardy

Mathematician, Associate professor at Université de Lille, France.

I'm a mathematician, interested in random and complex interacting systems.

Actually on leave at Qube Research and Technologies (Paris).

My research interests lie principally in understanding large random interacting particle systems, including random matrix models, determinantal point processes, or Gibbs measures such as the Coulomb gas. More recently, I became interested in using such models for applications (numerical integration, machine learning & AI, signal processing, telecomunications, finance...).

Member of the INRIA team PARADYSE.
Member of the ANR JCJC BoB and the ERC StG BlackJack (PI: Rémi Bardenet).

In November 2020, I obtained my "Habilitation à diriger des recherches" (HDR) from the University of Lille; the manuscript can be found here.

Since September 2020, I am on leave (en disponibilité) to work as a quantitative researcher at Qube Research and Technologies (Paris).

Since September 2015, I am Maître de conférences (~Associate professor) in the Laboratoire Paul Painlevé, which is the mathematic department of the University of Lille.

During 2013-2015, I had a postdoctoral position at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in the research team of Kurt Johansson.

In June 2013, I obtained a joint PhD degree (see the thesis) from KU Leuven, supervised by Arno Kuijlaars, and the Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse, supervised by Michel Ledoux.

Before that, I studied in the Magistère de mathématiques de Strasbourg, including a Bachelor thesis with Janos Polonyi on quantum physics' axioms, a Magistère thesis with Jean-Bernard Zuber on quantum integrable systems (internship at the Laboratoire de Physique Théorique et Hautes Energies de Jussieu), and a Master thesis with Pierre van Moerbeke on random matrices and tillings (Erasmus exchange program with the Université Catholique de Louvain).
