Currently senior research officer at the National Research Council Canada, where I work in the Multilingual Text Processing group in the Information and Communication Technology portfolio.

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).

In 2003, I was involved in the Johns Hopkins CLSP summer workshop on confidence estimation for MT led by my colleague George Foster.

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 modelling of functional neuroimages.

My Erdös number is (at most) 3.
