I'm now Senior Research Staff at Criteo. This website may become outdated.

My name is Jérémie Mary (beware of the spelling it's not Jeremy nor Marie, I wonder how many emails went wrong because of this ;) ). I'm Associate Professor (Maître de Conférences HDR) in the SequeL INRIA team and member of Cristal (Former LIFL, CNRS, UMR 9189) at the University of Lille.

I achieved my PhD at the University of Orsay (Paris XI - France) in the TAO team under the direction of Michèle Sebag and Antoine Cornuéjols.

My current research interest are related on :

  • Optimisation of Ads display with constraints ;
