About Me
About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Université d’Aix-Marseille. My research interests revolve around Information Retrieval, with a touch of Natural Language Processing, or Machine Learning. I teach Python and R Programming, Machine Learning, Big Data Analytics and Data Mining. I also play bass guitar in a band and act in on stage musicals. But this is "a-whole-nother" story...
