I graduated from the University of Technology of Compiègne (UTC) with a master degree in computer science in 2000. I then started my career as a software engineer in England before moving to Germany in 2002 to join Technicolor. After 6 more years as a development engineer going from one challenge to another, I seized the opportunity to work as a researcher. In 2010 I moved to Rennes to join the biggest Research & Innovation center of Technicolor. Since then I have worked with text in diverse forms: movie scripts, speech transcripts, system logs, forum discussions… My current research interests lie in data mining and in particular text mining.
