I am no longer affiliated to any university or company, and I am now living in one of the most depopulated region of France, simply enjoying life, although I still work on a search engine related project. Whether you are a former co-worker, a long-time friend or a total stranger, please drop me an email if you need anything, or come and say hi if you happen to be nearby!
I joined Yellow Pages Group (Canada) in January 2015, where I worked as a researcher in the Relevance Optimisation team.
Prior to that, I have worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Glasgow, where I was a member of the Terrier Team and worked on the European SMART FP7 project.
Before that, I did my Ph.D. at the University of Avignon (LIA), where I worked under the direction of Dr. Eric SanJuan-Ibekwe and Pr. Patrice Bellot.
I am interested in Information Access in general, including conceptual Information Retrieval and query modeling, user-oriented Automatic Summarization and query-biased Recommendation.
I sometimes do some blogging and some coding. You can find experimental releases of my research code on my GitHub account, which I'll try to keep up to date.
I also did some teaching at the Computer Science department of the University of Avignon during my Ph.D., mostly for MSc students.
