About Me

I am Full Professor at Université Côte d’Azur, Inria, CNRS, I3S and member of the Wimmics Research Team. I have been recently awarded with a Chair in Artificial Intelligence at the Interdisciplinary Institute for Artificial Intelligence 3IA Côte d’Azur on “AI and Natural Language”.

I defended my HDR (habilitation) in October 2020.

Goal of my research is to design debating technologies for advanced decision support systems, to support the exchange of information and opinions in different domains (as healthcare and politics), leveraging interdisciplinarity and advances in machine learning for Natural Language Processing. I am currently coordinating the ANTIDOTE (ArgumeNtaTIon-Driven explainable artificial intelligence fOr digiTal mEdicine) project (CHIST-ERA XAI 2019).

Research interests: Natural Language Processing, Argument Mining, Abusive content detection, Information Extraction.
