Short bio

Currently, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Machine Learning group of the Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble (LIG). Specifically, I work with Prof. Massih-Reza Amini on the FUI project Calypso, a collaboration with Kelkoo and Purch on recommendation systems and online advertising.

I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Paris Descartes in 2016 under the supervision of Mohamed Nadif.

Research interests

My main line of research is in statistical machine learning. I am particularly interested in designing unsupervised (probabilistic) learning algorithms for high-dimensional data. More recently I have started to work on learning to rank approaches for recommendation systems.

My current research focus includes:

  • unsupervised learning for high-dimensional data
  • constrained probabilistic co-clustering
  • unsupervised feature selection
  • representation learning and learning-to-rank
  • document classification and recommendation systems
