Short bio

I am working as Research Scientist in Data Science Applications Group at NEC Laboratories Europe, Heidelberg, Germany.

I obtained my Ph.D. in computer science (Machine Learning) from Université de Lyon, Lyon. I worked under the guidance of Prof. Massih-Reza Amini at LIG, Grenoble and Dr. Emilie Morvant at LaHC, CNRS, Saint-Etienne. During my Ph.D., I was actively involved in ANR LIVES Project (Learning with Interacting ViEwS). Before that, I did my Masters in Computer Science from ENSIMAG, Grenoble INP, France (2014-2015).
