I’m a graduate student in mathematics at UQAM. This is my personal blog about technical interests.

### Realisations/awards:

- Alexander-Graham-Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship (master studies, 17500$, CRSNG)
- Bourse de maîtrise en recherche (17500$, FRQNT)
- Undergraduate research award (CRSNG, summer 2017)
- Undergraduate research award (CRSNG, summer 2016)

### Publications:

- Binette, O. & Guillotte, S.
*Bayesian Nonparametrics for Directional Statistics*(submitted, 2018) - Binette, O.
*Topologie et apprentissage machine*(submitted, 2018). This is a short paper submitted to the student journal Notes from the Margin.

### Some talks/posters/exposition:

*Probabilités en dimension infinie.*(Présentation au Séminaire des cycles supérieurs de l’UQAM, 2017)*Constrained semiparametric modelling (for directional statistics).*Poster presentation at the 11th Bayesian Nonparametrics Conference (Paris, 2017)*Bayesian learning: semiparametric modelling and asymptotic theory.*Student Research Session talk at the Mathematical Congress of the Americas (Montreal, 2017).*Bayesian (nonparametric) learning.*Talk at the Canadian Undergraduate Mathematics Conference (Montreal, 2017).*Constructive polynomial approximation.*Talk at the student summer seminar (2017).*The Banach-Tarski paradox.*Talk at the CIRGET student seminar (2015).

### Organization:

*Conférences Midi-Math.*Co-organizer, winter 2017.*Student summer seminar.*Organizer, summer 2017.

### Academic interests:

- Bayesian mathematical statistics
*(what can we learn from data?)* - Asymptotic behaviour of posterior distributions
*(what happens as more and more data is gathered?)* - The geometry of statistical models
*(how can other fields of mathematics contribute insights?)*

### Other things I like:

- Traveling, biking and hiking.
*Robotics, electronics and programming languages.*A much younger me built a few robots, guitar amplifiers and effects; I played with field programmable gate arrays to program logical circuits and arithmetic logical units; made a few websites; etc.*Ethics and animal rights.*
