My field of research is natural language processing with a pinch of machine learning.
I focus on semantic content analysis and modeling, multimodal system fusion, and rigorous evaluation of related technologies in realistic applications.
Recent news: I am now a full professor at Polytech Marseille. I defended my HDR (habilitation to lead research) in 2019. I am co-head of multimodality in the CNRS GdR on NLP. Popularization days at CNRS headquarters in Paris. My work in the press.
- Master IAAA: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
- ILCB Summer school: Advanced Machine learning for NLP
I am the head of the Data Science axis at LIS which encompasses the following research teams:
In 2018-2019, I spent a nine month sabbatical at Queensland University of Technology Brisbane in Australia. In 2010-2021, I was Maitre de Conférence (MCF) at the computer science department of AMU. In 2009, I was postdoc at Laboratoire d'Informatique de l'Université du Maine (LIUM) and postdoc at International Computer Science Institute, Berkeley in 2007-2009. I graduated from Université d'Avignon et des Pays de Vaucluse, at Laboratoire d'Informatique d'Avignon (LIA).
