Pierre Youssef received his PhD degree in Mathematics from Université Paris-Est Marne-La-Vallée (France, 2013) and was awarded the prize of Université Paris Est for it. After spending two years as a PIMS/CNRS postdoctoral fellow at the University of Alberta (Canada), he moved to Université Paris Diderot where he holds a "maître de conférences'' position since 2015.
His research focuses on high dimensional phenomena occurring in probability, graph theory, convex geometry, and functional analysis. The interconnection between these topics is at the heart of his work.
