I am an Associate Professor (Maître de conférences) of Computer Science at TELECOM Nancy at the University of Lorraine. I am member of Capsid research team (Inria – CNRS) at the Lorraine Laboratory of Research in Computer Science and its Applications (LORIA). Previously, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Aalto University in Finland and as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Trento in Italy. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Blaise Pascal University, France in 2013. My research interests include Big Data Management and Analytics, Data Mining, machine learning and Bioinformatics.


Our paper « An Experimental Survey on Big Data Frameworks » has been accepted at the 10th Extremely Large Databases Conference (XLDB) 2017 for a lightning talk.

I’m co-chairing the workshop Large-Scale Time Dependent Graphs (TD-LSG)  in conjunction with ECML PKDD 2017 (the premier European machine learning and data mining conference)

Our paper « A Distributed Framework for Large-Scale Time-Dependent Graph Analysis » has been accepted at TDLSTG@ECML-PKDD 2017.
