I'm now a research scientist at Facebook ! But the best part is that I'm still working on machine translation :)
I completed my PhD thesis under the supervision of Prof. Bill Byrne on statistical machine translation in the Machine Intelligence Lab. My main focus was on hiero grammars (modelling and infrastructure), but I also worked a bit on language modelling and string regeneration. During my studies, I had many collaborations with Dr. AdriÓ De Gispert, Rory Waite, Dr. Gonzalo Iglesias, Dr. Graeme Blackwood and Dr. Jamie Brunning.

Before that, I completed my masters at the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University in 2009, and my bachelors at the Ecole Polytechnique in France where I come from.
