About

Hi! I am a 3rd year PhD NLP student in the Hubert Curien laboratory, located in St-Étienne, France. Alongside my PhD, I’m also working for Meetic, a dating website of the Match Group. There, I am in charge of the Natural Language Understanding of Lara, a dating chatbot.

Among the many things I love, my favourite topics are mathematics, programming, and puzzle solving. I always love searching for appropriate solutions when facing new challenges and modern problems.


Research

My research is focused on processing user-generated short texts, like tweets or conversation logs, and finding a proper modeling of those texts to improve Natural Language Understanding in human-agent interactions. In this context, my main focus subjects are:

  • Intent detection, entity recognition
  • Few-shot learning when datasets are scarce
  • Language modeling of noisy user-generated content

If you’d like to find out more, check out the publications section or my CV!


Hobbies

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time trying to solve puzzles either from reddit, or from other sources.
