Senior Analytics and NLP Researcher
North Side Inc. in Montreal where I led the language team to develop dialog management technologies for the Bot Colony game. I conducted my PhD research at Human Media Interaction Group, University of Twente, the Netherlands and spent one and a half years as a research associate at Stanford University in the Center for the Study of Language and Information. I also worked at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland.
I have been working in various research projects in the domain of dialogue management and natural language processing. Below is a list of my recent publications. For a complete list of my publication, see: https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=FpFTduYAAAAJ&hl=en
