I am a research scientist at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland where I develop deep learning solutions tailored for analyzing social media. I am especially involved in the Oyoty project which aims at aiding online children safety. I finished my PhD working on deep learning models for natural language processing with Ronan Collobert at the Idiap Research Institute. During my PhD, I also spent a few months working on concept-to-text generation at Facebook AI Research with David Grangier and Michael Auli. Before diving into deep learning, I worked in the development of better methods for the analysis and interpretation of biomedical data, especially in genetics. I had the privilege of leading the development of Taxonomy3®, which has since been acquired by C4X Discovery in March 2016. Back then, I was an R enthusiast which led me to develop the Rmixmod package. Since I am working on deep learning, I am now devoted to PyTorch 🔥.
