About

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not ‘Eureka!’ but ‘That’s funny…’ — Isaac Asimov (1920–1992)

pictureI am associate professor at the Faculty of Computer Science of the Université de Namur.  I completed a degree in computing science engineering (spec. in artificial intelligence) in 2007 at the Université catholique de Louvain.  Then, I got a PhD degree in the UCL Machine Learning Group in 2013.  The topic of my thesis was Uncertainty and Label Noise in Machine Learning .  In parallel, I also completed a master in pedagogy in 2010 with a focus on problem-based learning.  Also, I had the opportunity to do research stays at the Aalto University, the Radboud University Nijmegen and the CITEC center of excellence at the Bielefeld University.  In 2014, I received the Scientific Prize IBM Belgium for Informatics for my PhD thesis.

My main research interests in machine learning include support vector machines, label noise, efficient learning, graphical models, classification, clustering, density estimation, interpretability, visualisation and feature selection.  I like to collaborate and I am open to new topics, including projects in collaboration with enterprises (industry, IT, etc.).

For my calls for papers and publications, see the other tabs of this website.  If you have any question related to my research (or something else), please do not hesitate to contact me.

My curriculum vitae and publication list is also available here in PDF (updated Apr. 2015).

On the personal side, I wrote a book of SF short stories: Symbiose et autres nouvelles.
