Xavier Milhaud is currently Assistant Professor at ISFA, University of Lyon. Previously, he directed the Specialized Master of Actuarial Science at ENSAE ParisTech (Paris). During his PhD thesis in Applied Mathematics, carried out within the insurance company AXA under CIFRE contract, he studied the behavior of life insurance policyholders.

His research themes revolve more generally around segmentation techniques with the aim of modeling the heterogeneity of populations. Recently, he worked on extensions of non-parametric models such as regression and classification trees, in order to adapt them to incomplete data (typical in insurance).
