My award paper

Selected writings


I am a scientist and software engineer specialised in computational intelligence techniques (Genetic Algorithms, Ant Colonies, Machine Learning, Multi-Agent Simulation, Artificial Intelligence...) for real-world applications.

I graduated from Université de Technologie de Compiègne, a French Engineering School, in 2003, spending a full year in the USA studying and doing research at UIUC and MIT. I have 8 years of experience working as a R&D engineer in international settings for INRIA (3 years), Eurobios (3 years) and (2 years) where I work now on social computing, machine learning and spam fighting. I have also looked into Computer Graphics, E-Learning, Finance, Combinatorial Optimization, Logistics and Geostrategy.

What you can find here is the scientific part of my resume: publications, technical reports and talks I gave. You will find an exhaustive list below and selected items in the sidebar.

For the rest, you can find my full CV in english here or see my LinkedIn profile here. I also have references available upon request.
