Short bio

I am an associate professor (maitre de conferences HDR) at University of Rennes 1. Before joining Universite Rennes 1, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at EPFL, in Switzerland. I completed my doctoral studies in computer science at University of Oxford. I used to work as a research assistant at the Database and Artificial Intelligence Group, of the Vienna University of Technology, at the Vienna University of Economics and at the Distributed Systems Group at the Vienna University of Technology. I pursued my undergraduate studies at the University ELTE, in Budapest, Hungary.

I am a senior member of the ACM. I am also a member of some ACM special interest groups: on management of data SIGMOD, on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining SIGKDD and on artificial intelligence SIGAI.
