Postdoctoral Researcher

ISE, FIZ Karlsruhe


I am a postdoctoral researcher since October 2023 at Information Service Engineering Team at FIZ Karlsruhe and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology under the supervision of Harald Sack.

Between December 2022 and October 2023, I was a postdoctoral researcher (more precisely, Temporary Lecturer and Research Staff, ATER) at Computer Science Department of Ecole Normale Supérieure, VALDA Team. I have worked on the TheoremKB research project under the supervision of Pierre Senellart. I have also participated in the teaching of the Centre de formation sur l’environnement et la société (CERES).

I obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne and ISEP Paris in December 2022. I was co-supervised by Rafael Angarita, Stéphane Cormier, Raja Chiky and Francis Rousseaux.

My work explores knowledge reconstruction from textual, heterogeneous and domain-specific data.
