Short Bio
I am a CNRS researcher at the LIRIS lab, in the DRIM group, since October 2009. Before that, I was a research associate at University College London (UCL) for two years, working with Licia Capra.

I received my PhD in 2007 from University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6), which I did under the supervision of Valérie Issarny and Nikolaos Georgantas in the INRIA ARLES project-team.
