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 research fellow 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.
