Brief bio

My main research interests are spoken language understanding and speech recognition.  

I have studied Computer Science (Licence and Master's degree) at the Faculty of Sciences of Luminy (Marseille, France). I obtained my PhD on 2002, under the direction of Pr. Renato De Mori, at the Computer Science Labs (LIA) of the University of Avignon (Avignon, France), in association with France Telecom R&D (FTRD, now Orange Labs). 

I have worked since June 2002 with FTRD as a research engineer, then as a post-doctoral researcher until August 2003.  
Then, I have worked until 2018 at the Computer Science Labs (LIUM) of the University of Le Mans (France), from September 2003 as an associate professor, becoming a full professor in 2010.

I have headed the  LIUM from 2012 to 2016 and was a co-founder of the Language and Speech Technology (LST) team of this lab.

From 2015 to 2018, I was also the head of the Claude Chappe Informatics Institute that coordinates research, teaching, and innovation activities on computer science at the University of Le Mans.

In 2018, I moved to the Computer Science Labs of Avignon (LIA) at the University of Avignon.

In May 2020, I became the head of LIA.

My current research activities focus on spoken language understanding, speech translation, speech analytics, speech recognition, deep neural networks, word embeddings, hidden representation.

Currently (2019-2022), I am leading the ON-TRAC project funded by the ANR (French Research Agency) on end-to-end speech translation, and I am the LIA scientific responsible in the ANR DEEP-PRIVACY project focusing on privacy in the framework of speech recognition.
