Who am I?

I am a Postdoc/Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter at the Heinrich Heine Universität Düsseldorf since April 2015. After mainly contributing to the project A02 from the CRC 991, I was part of the TreeGraSP ERC project. Before this, I was a visiting fellow in the SToRE program.

From 2010 to 2014, I was a Ph.D. student at the LIFO, in the CA (Constraints & Machine Learning) team, under the supervision of Denys Duchier and co-supervision of Yannick Parmentier.

What do I do?


My main research interests are Natural Language Processing and Constraint Solving. I am the main developer of XMG-2, a grammar engineering tool which is related to both of these interests. The aim of XMG is to let linguists build large scale precision grammars, independently from the level of linguistic description or of the formalism used to describe it.

I also contribute to the development of the latest release of the parser TuLiPA, called TuLiPA-frames.


I taught various courses in computer science and computational linguistics. The list is available on the teaching page.


I like to program using different languages. Most of my recent projects can be found on GitHub or GitLab.
