Short bio

I defended my Phd in 2004 at the University of Saint-Etienne. From 2005 to 2011 I was assistant professor at the University of Aix-Marseille and a member of the machine learning group of the fundamental computer science laboratory where I defended my habilitation thesis in 2010. I also spent 8 months at the University of Alicante in Spain. I got my current position as a full professor in 2011.
