I am a research assistant at Insight@NUIG, working in the Unit for Natural Language Processing (UNLP) under the lead of Dr. Paul Buitelaar. I am currently working on the management part of the EU project MixedEmotions on emotion detection, am responsible for Insight's topic extraction and taxonomy generation tool Saffron, and am building a system for definition extraction out of legal texts using a mixture of automatic NLP tools and symbolic methods, for a project with the Government Risk and Compliance Technology Center of Cork. I'm also part of the organizers' team for the conference LDK 2017 that will be hold in June 2017 in Galway.
I have a background in Natural Language Processing. I did a BSc. in Computer Science and Linguistics in Lyon, France (2011) and a MSc. in NLP in Grenoble, France (2013). Thesis : Transforming French shallow dependencies into a home made Stanford-style Dependencies set adapted to French language
Before joining Insight, I worked 3 years at Holmes Semantic Solutions on European research projects, like SAUGE where i helped developp a CV parser with ontology linking, or TIER in the epidemic risks detection part. I also worked on projects for private companies (Orange, SFR, Euromaster, etc.), especially in the field of customer relationship management, which involved information extraction, sentiment analysis and automatic classification of customer reviews.
