Hi, I’m Nicolas!

I’m an associate research scientist at the Data Science Institute at Columbia University in New York, in Andreas Müller’s team.

My work is mainly focused on maintaining and contributing to the scikit-learn library. My goal is to build open source and high-quality software for democratizing machine learning.

During my PhD (link) I developed (and now maintain) Surprise, a Python library to build and analyze recommender systems.

In the blog section, I try to write about stuff that took me way too long to understand.

Here is my (often outdated) résumé.
