  Research Interests

My current research interest (since 2005) goes to natural language processing (NLP), especially to the syntax-semantics interface and to discourse analysis. Here are some more specific subjects I work on (or I have been working on):

My former main interest (before 2005) was for better ways to write better programs, i.e., how to rapidly write safer, faster and smaller programs. Please visit my "other life's web page" for details.

  Professional Itinerary

After my studies at the École polytechnique (1988), I left the hectic Parisian life to specialize in computer science (DEA) and software engineering (Masters) in the beautiful French Riviera (1989). During my Ph.D. (1990-1994), I worked on the semantics of programming languages and on partial evaluation in Gilles Kahn's group (CROAP) at INRIA Sophia Antipolis. I also spent a year in the LFCS at the University of Edinburgh (1993-1994). I then moved to Toulouse -- a city after my own heart -- to work for a company named Simulog, doing program analyses and transformations for reverse engineering (1994-96). Wanting more research and more fun, I joined the Compose group (1996-2000), formerly at IRISA / INRIA (Rennes) and now at LaBRI / INRIA (Bordeaux). I then worked for Trusted Logic (2000-2004) on development, safety and security issues for small embedded systems (smart cards, cell phones, payment terminals, etc.), applying research techniques to realistic data. But I have always been interested in natural languages as well, and I have now (2005-) joined the Signes group at LaBRI / INRIA (Bordeaux), to work on natural language processing. See my resume (in French) for details.
