About me

Since December 2023, I have been a member of the OCEAN team, serving as a Postdoctoral researcher in Statistics and Machine Learning. OCEAN is an ERC Synergy grant led by Eric Moulines (Ecole Polytechnique), Michael I. Jordan (UC Berkeley, INRIA), Christian Robert (Université Paris Dauphine) and Gareth Roberts (University of Warwick). Currently based at Ecole Polytechnique, I work under the guidance of Eric Moulines.

Previously, I was a Ph.D. student in Probability, since January 2021, at LPSM, Sorbonne University in Paris, under the supervision of Idris Kharroubi. I defended my thesis on November 20, 2023. If you're curious about my research, you can explore the manuscript HERE.

My research interests are about Generative models, Sampling, Optimal transport, Stochastic control and Branching processes. Feel free to reach out to discuss about any of this topics (and beyond) at antonio.ocello[at]polytechnique.edu.

You can find my CV here.

Breaking news! This summer, I will have the pleasure to present a mini course in Mean-Field Games for Machine Learning at the ERC OCEAN Summer retreat in Venice. Looking forward to diving in such a great opportunity!
