My main interest is in Deep Learning for multilingual Natural Language Processing applied to Dialogue Systems and Information Retrieval.
I focus on responsible models for several fields of NLP: Spoken Language Understanding, semantic content analysis and modeling, machine translation, Intent Detection in real-life application at scale.
Since years I'm giving NLP courses to master or engineer students for instance:
- EPITA - International Program (since 2019)
- Polytech Grenoble - MOSIG - International Programm (2016)
... and many other computer science courses such like programming, databases, etc.
Before joining LISN-CNRS lab and Qwant, he was applied researcher at SYSTRAN to work on domain adaptation for NMT (2016-2017), member of the GETALP team at the University of Grenoble to develop Deep Learning approaches for SMT evaluation (2015-2016), part of the Xerox Research Centre Europe (XRCE) in the Machine Learning for Document Access and Translation (MLDAT) group (2013-2015), postdoc researcher in the Speech and Language Technology group at the laboratory of the University of Le Mans, France (LIUM), research engineer at the Vision & Content Engineering Laboratory at the CEA LIST (2009-2010).
He received a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Avignon, France in 2008.
Since February 2022, I'm part of the LISN-CNRS lab
NEW: Since February 2022, I'm put at disposition of the LISN-CNRS lab.
