Welcome to my personal Webpage!

I am working in the field of Natural Language Processing and especially on Machine Translation. My research interests concern also Artificial Intelligence, Text Processing (Information Retrieval, Classification, Topic Modeling, etc.) and any kind of corpus-based statistical analysis.

I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in Universität des Saarlandes, Germany. I am working on the aspects of information density in human and machine translation as part of the Information Density and Linguistic Encoding (SFB1102 - IDeaL) research center. More details can be found on the specific project webpage: Aspects of Information Density in Human and Machine Translation.

From 2014 to 2015, I was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie post-doctoral fellow, working with the industry partner Prompsit Language Engineering, in Spain. My main activity was about improving machine translation for low-resource languages as part of the Abu-MaTran FP7 project.

From 2012 to 2013, I was a double-affiliated post-doctoral researcher at Dublin City University School of Computing and Symantec, Ireland. I was working on Quality Estimation for Machine Translation. The project was co-funded by the Irish Research Council through the Enterprise Partership Scheme. My collaborators were Rasoul Samad Zadeh Kaljahi, Jennifer Foster, Johann Roturier and Fred Hollowood.

From 2008 to 2011, I was assistant lecturer at the Centre d'Enseignement et de Recherche en Informatique (CERI), Université d'Avignon et des Pays de Vaucluse (UAPV).

My Ph.D. thesis is about domain adaptation for statistical machine translation and it was supervised by Pr. Philippe Langlais, Pr. Fabrice Lefèvre and Pr. Georges Linarès. I was part of the AVISON project, financed by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR), at the Laboratoire Informatique d'Avignon (LIA).
