I am a post-doc in the team of Tim van Erven at the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics, of the University of Amsterdam, where I work on adaptive online learning.
I defended my PhD in 2020 at the LMO of the Université Paris-Saclay, studying multi-armed bandits with a focus on adaptation problems, under the supervision of Gilles Stoltz and Pascal Massart. Before that, I graduated from the École Polytechnique in 2016. I completed the Part III of the Mathematical Tripos at the University of Cambridge (2015-2016) and also obtained a Master's degree (M2) in Probability and Statistics at Orsay in 2016-2017.

I am TAing for the Machine Learning Theory class of the MasterMath program (2021 and 2022).
For the year 2019-2020, I was a teaching assistant for the following classes at Orsay:
During the years 2017-2019, at the IUT de Sceaux. I TA'ed for the courses:
I enjoy bouldering and I'd like to be better at chess. I read a lot of comics/graphic novels, and sometimes real books. When I feel free, I like to go to the movies.
My first name is Hédi and my last name is Hadiji. In Arabic my first name is written هادي. In English (and in French) pronounce my name like "Eddy".
