Currently senior research officer at the National Research Council Canada, team lead of the Multilingual Text Processing group in the Digital Technologies research centre.

My research interests are in applying Machine Learning techniques to various fields.  Since 2000, I have worked on applications involving textual data (sometimes referred to as Text Mining). I worked mainly on document clustering and categorisation (including filtering and routing), but also multilingual applications such as (bilingual) word alignment or Machine Translation (MT). In the past few years I have also worked on Educational Data Mining, i.e. analyzing large dataset of educational data (e.g. from MOOCs or ITS).

From 2001 to 2006, I was at the Xerox Research Centre Europe (XRCE) in Grenoble, France, where I worked on applying Machine Learning techniques to facilitate access to textual information.

Before that, I was at Inria Rhône-Alpes, Nokia Mobile Phones, and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), where I worked on statistical modeling of functional neuroimages.

My Erdös number is (at most) 3.
