Short biography

I am a researcher on Information Retrieval and Social Network Analysis at the Data-Driven Decision Making Lab (D3M) of the University of Toronto. I'm also affilated with the School of Computing and Information Systems of the University of Melbourne, where I worked as a research fellow from 2015 to 2017 on data quality in bioinformatics databases. I conducted my Ph.D. thesis in Computer Science within the AMIS (Advanced Modelling of adaptive Information Systems) team and received it from the University of Paris-Saclay, Versailles in December 2013.

An intresting point is that my research career is characterized by the fact that I have had the opportunity to work within several research laboratories across different countries, including Bell Labs (France), INRIA (France), NICTA (Australia), The University of Melbourne (Australia) and The University of Toronto (Canada). These experiences allowed me to participate in several research projects on different topics, and thus, to collaborate with numerous researchers.

Research Interests

I'm mainly interested in the following topics: Information Retrieval, Biomedical NLP, Social Network Analysis, Data Mining, Machine Learning, Recommender Systems, and Databases.
