I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Lorraine Laboratory of Research in Computer Science and its Applications (LORIA), BIRD team. Previously, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Tallinn University, Data Science Group. My research work focuses on big graph analysis and explainable artificial intelligence (XIA). I received my Ph.D. in computer science from the Faculty of Science of Tunis, University Tunis EL-Manar, Tunisia in 2021. My Ph.D. thesis was carried out in collaboration between the Faculty of Sciences of Tunis, (LORIA) University of Lorraine, Nancy, and LIMOS, University of Clermont Auvergne, Clermont Ferrand. In this thesis, I have mainly focused on massive data analysis (big data), complex data (big graphs), and large-scale machine learning.

My research areas include (but are not limited to):

    • Big Data
    • Graph processing
    • Graph representation learning
    • Deep graph Learning
    • Explainable artificial intelligence
