Few words about me

Holding a PhD in computer science, I am passionate about data management and knowledge mining. After 8 years both in public research and private sector, I am interested in any challenge involving massive data management, with supervised or unsupervised learning.

DataGlue
2018
Personal Project – Tweag
DataGlue is an Haskell projet that aims to offer high-level functions which mask the complexity of the implementation of Haskell libraries to the data scientist. The aim is also to align the different useful packages for data science in Haskell to propose a coherent, fully compatible and directly usable data science ecosystem. DataGlue is based upon Jupyter lab to provide the same integrated environment and notebook capacities that R or Python data scientists are used to.
The DataGlue initiative is just at its beginning, and is part of the dataHaskell open source project.
Functional development, Data Science.
SAGE: “StorAGe for Exascale Data Centric Computing”
2017 – 2018
H2020 Project – European Union
Supervised by Dr. Arnaud Spiwack.
SAGE system aims to implement a Big Data/Extreme Computing (BDEC) and High Performance Data Analytics (HPDA) capable infrastructure suitable for Extreme scales – including Exascale and beyond. The SAGE storage system will be capable of efficiently storing and retrieving immense volumes of data at extreme scales, with the ability to accept and perform user defined computations integral to the storage system.
Functional development.
C3-Cloud
2016 – 2017
H2020 Project – European Union
The C3-Cloud project will establish an ICT infrastructure enabling a collaborative care and cure cloud to enable continuous coordination of patient-centred care activities by a multidisciplinary care team and patients/informal care givers.
Fusion of multimodal patient and provider data is achieved via an interoperability middleware for seamless integration with existing information systems. An Integrated Terminology Server with advanced semantic functions enables meaningful analysis of multimodal data and clinical rules. Active patient involvement and treatment adherence is achieved through a Patient Empowerment Platform ensuring patient needs are respected in decision making and taking into account preferences and psychosocial aspects. Co-design and 4-layered multi-method multi-stakeholder evaluation will lead to a user friendly solution.
Project management, Knowledge engineering, Interoperability Middleware.
Vigi4MED
2014 – 2016
ANSM Project – Inserm
Side effects that are likely to be related to drugs render a major public health problem. Pharmacovigilance is the discipline that aims to analyze these adverse effects, explain and implement measures for their prevention. Vigi4MED is a project to detect adverse drug reactions (ADRs) from social networks founded by the French drug safety agency (ANSM).
Messages are evaluated from the point of view of their potential interest and quality. The likelihood of adverse reaction is verified by taking into account patient language and context. The evaluation is made (1) retrospectively on medications withdrawn from the market, and (2) prospectively to identify new drugs that may have serious and unexpected side effects not seen in clinical trials due to their rarity.
Twitter parsing, Knowledge engineering.
FIORA: “Semantic inference engine for custom consulting”
2013 – 2014
FUI Project – Inria
Supervised by Pr. Yves Lechevalier.
The FIORA project aims to designing and developing a personalization engine, to propose contents and advices the most appropriate for a given user, with maximum reliability.
Scientifically, a key objective is to merge within a single engine case-based reasoning, techniques of collaborative filtering recommendations, and validation of recommendations by data mining. A decisive step is the construction of a formal interaction layer where information and knowledge are handled and treated. In addition, the FIORA project developed scalable personalization techniques, coupled with the BigData approaches and knowledge representation, to set up a referral system the least intrusive possible, scalable and distributed.
Data Mining, Knowledge engineering, XML Parsers.
WebTribe
2009 – 2012
Thesis project – Le2i lab
WebTribe is a tool for community discovery based on the analysis of discussion forums, tweets, e-mails, and more generally of any communication situation between users.
In this tool, communications from various sources are tracked in real time, analyzed according to a reference ontology, and a summary of user activity is built in a continuous and incremental way. Communities are identified and updated depending on the semantics and structure of communications between users.
See Youtube demonstration.
Data Mining, Semantic clustering, Unsupervised learning.
Graduate studies
PhD in Computer Sciences
2009 – 2012
Le2i lab, University of Burgundy – Dijon, France
Entitled “Community discovery and analysis through an online semantic approach: the WebTribe tool” and defended on November 30, 2012, this thesis focuses on the notion of online communities, their discoverability by unsupervised learning methods and the definition and computation of their key features.
Data Mining, Semantic clustering, Unsupervised learning.
Master’s degree in Business Management
