Since september 2015, I am an Associate Professor in the Laboratoire Informatique d'Avignon (LIA) within the University of Avignon, France. I also give different courses on computer science at the Centre d'Enseignement et de Recherche en Informatique (CERI) of the University of Avignon.

My research interests lie on Artificial Intelligence (AI) with a special focus on Artificial Neural Networks. The application contexts are Natural Language Processing (NLP), Information Retrieval, image processing as well as Information Extraction from big corpora of documents (Web).

From septembre 2014 to august 2015, I have been an Teaching and Research Assistant within the University of Avignon, France. I have pursued my research by proposing a robust representation of noisy documents from an automatic speech recognition system in a reduced space. Then, I have proposed original methods based on topic models to locate short text messages from sharing platforms.

From november 1st 2013 to febuary 1st 2014, I spent time visiting the Microsoft Research (Cambridge, UK) Laboratory and worked on the PowerPoint Assistant international project. I proposed original methods to allow Microsoft customers to enrich their PowerPoint presentations with relevant content.

I have obtained in november 2014, my Ph.D. in Computer Science within the Laboratoire Informatique d'Avignon in the Natural Language Processing (NLP) domain, and more precisely, I have proposed robust representation of noisy documents from an automatic speech recognition system (dialogues) or from sharing platforms such as Twitter or Youtube.

«Et pourtant qu’avais-je fait ? [...] J’avais la simplicité de rester tel que le ciel m’avait fait, et, parce que je n’avais envie de rien, on crut que je voulais tout. Aujourd’hui, je conçois très bien que ma vie à part était une grande faute...
Mr. de Rainneville: Comment ! vous ne voulez rien être ! Allez-vous en ! Nous ne voulons pas qu’un homme méprise ce que nous adorons, et qu’il se croie en droit d’insulter la médiocrité de notre vie.»
