Currently, I am an associate professor at University Paris Sud (France). Before joining the group LaHDAK at the laboratory of Computer Science LRI at Paris-Sud in 2014, I was a researcher assistant in the group Theoretical Computer Science of TU Dresden (Germany) since 2012, working with Prof. Franz Baader on semi-automated generation of bio-meidcal ontologies. During July 2008 to March 2012, I was a Postdoc in the group RCLN of labotorary  LIPN-CNRS, University Paris13 (France), led by Porf. Adeline Nazarenko. In July 2008, I received my doctorate degree from School of Mathematical Sciences of Peking University (China) under the supervision of Prof. Zuoquan Lin. From 2006 to 2007, I was a visiting doctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Rudi Studer in the Institute AIFB of KIT (Germany). 

My research interests are situated within the domain of knowledge representation adapted to the semantic web and text comprehension. It is concerned three aspects:
  • Knowledge Representation (the logic approach for Artificial Intelligence),
  • Semantic Web (the next generation of the web), and
  • Semantic methods for natural language processing.
I am working on classical and non-classical semantic techniques for multimedia applications, text centered as a special. The formalism that I use is mainly the DESCRIPTION LOGIC for the semantics-based applications, such as semantic annotation, ontology construction, and ontology matching.
