The Web has introduced one of the greatest changes in the way we live and work. Yet, the potential of Web technologies is only partially uncovered.
My main interest is understanding Web-related phenomena in order to create novel technologies useful everyday life.
After finishing my PhD at the University Paris-Sorbonne I started a company, Sépage, and was joined by a wonderful co-founding team that produces a new generation of Relevance Engines and pushes the boundaries of known Web systems.
- Industrial application of my research is the most important part of my work. Bringing the scientific progress to real-life situations requires a joint effort of marketing, R&D and management. The Sépage team that I am a part of, creates technologies of the future - today.
- Still involved in research I actively participate in the activities of the academic community as a member of program committees of prestigious conferences and by co-organizing academic events such as the workshop Making Sense of Microposts.
- Helping Semantic Web become mainstream also involves passing the knowledge to students. I hold hands-on courses and workshops and I supervise students in their research projects at several universities.
