Brief Bio

I am currently a Professor, Director of Research and Director of the LTCI research laboratory at Télécom ParisTech. I held the Big Data and Market Insights Chair at Télécom ParisTech from 2013 to 2017. Before that, I led several research actions on social networks in the ANR-ISICIL project (2009-2012), on version control for semi-structured documents in the ANR-LPOD project (2009-2011) and in the FEDER-DROD project (2011-2013). My main research achievements are on XQuery optimization (CIKM’08), information extraction from the structured web (VLDB’10, ICDE’12), and social networks analysis (DBSocial’11, WWW’11, CIKM’12, RSWeb’13). My current research interests are in large-scale data management and mining, recommender systems and predictive analytics. I participated in several national and European research projects (IP/FP7, ANR, FEDER, ...). I supervised and co-supervised a dozen of Ph. D. students. I received a Habilitation degree (HDR) from the University Pierre & Marie Curie, a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University Paris-Dauphine. I spent two years as an assistant professor at the University Paris-Dauphine, before joining Telecom ParisTech (formerly ENST) in 1998.
