Short Bio

I am an engineer and Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Sciences and Networks (INFRES) at Institut Polytechnique de Paris (IP Paris), funded by a Google doctoral fellowship and working on Conversation AI research. I am supervised by Prof. Thomas Bonald (IMT LTCI) and Dr. Lucas Dixon (Google Brain). I am also a member of the Laboratory of Information, Networking and Communication Sciences (LINCS).

I am broadly interested about leveraging AI models and theory in social science computing, and specifically in applying technics of NLP for social good. My thesis focus is on developing systems to detect and mitigate subtle forms of toxicity in online conversations.

Prior to joining IP Paris, I spent a fantastic year as a pre-doctoral research engineer at the Institute for Infocomm Research (I²R) of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). There, I was a member of the Deep Learning 2.0 team and worked with Dr. Anran Wang, Dr. Chuan–Sheng Foo and Dr. Vijay Chandrasekhar. I completed my Master in computer science on May 2018 at the University of California, Berkeley where I was advised by Prof. Laurent El Ghaoui.
