Since September 2018, I am an Assistant Professor at Mila and in the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research (DIRO) at Université de Montréal, and I am a Canada CIFAR AI (CCAI) chair holder since March 2019. Before joining UdeM I was a post-doctoral research fellow in the Reasoning and Learning Lab at McGill University, where I worked with Prakash Panangaden, Joelle Pineau and Doina Precup.
I obtained my PhD in 2016 from AMU where I worked in the Qarma team (Machine Learning and Multimedia), under the supervision of François Denis and Hachem Kadri. Before that, I graduated with a MSc in Fundamental Computer Science from AMU and a BSc in Computer Science from the same university in distance learning.
I am interested in tensor methods for machine learning and in designing learning algorithms for structured data by leveraging linear and multilinear algebra (e.g. spectral methods).
