CV In brief
I received my Ph. D. on Neural Predictive Models Applied to Speaker Recognition in September 1995 at Paris Sud university. I then joined Université de Cergy Pontoise in September 1996 and then I joined the Computer Science Lab (LIP6) in Université Paris 6 in September 1999. I am currently working, in the Connexionnist group headed by Professor Patrick Gallinari.
I am member of the Pascal network of excellence, of the usage laboratory LUTIN and of the GRCE (French Research Group on Handwriting and Written Documents).
My research activities concern statistical machine learning with a special interest on sequential data and signals. I focused much of my work on statistical models for sequential data like Hidden Markov Models and Hidden Markov Trajectory Models, Dynamic Bayesian Networks, Hierarchical Hidden Markov Models, Probabilistic Grammars, Conditional Markov Random Fields.
I applied my works on speaker recognition, document segmentation, on-line handwriting recognition. ,Today I work on pen-based interfaces and on-line handwriting recognition and on user modeling in hypermedia.
I defended my "Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches" in December 2006. It sums up part of my research activities since my beginnings. The manuscript and the slides are available on-line (In French).
