From 2014 to 2016 I was Head of Research and Development at CogniK>, whose main product is a personalised content recommendation engine.

From 2012 to 2014 I was a Post-Doc Researcher within the Labex ASLAN. I was awarded the position to work on a proposal entitled "Temporal Models and Visualisations of Linguistic Production Contexts in Multimodal Interaction".

From 2010 to 2012 I was a Post-Doc Researcher at the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Carolyn Rosé.

My PhD ([pdf download]) was completed in 2009 at the Ecole des Mines of Saint-Etienne in France, supervised by Jean-Jacques Girardot (computer science) and Kristine Lund (socio-cognitive interaction analysis).

My research interests focus on the double use of technology as a medium for education and collaboration, and as a means to carry out analysis of such settings, particularly in terms of understanding the changing role of context over time. Download my CV.

Research projects and interests

2014 – 2016: Recommender Systems for media contents. How can we characterize media such as TV Shows and Music Videos for recommendation. How can we adapt recommendation algorithms to the constraints of editorial requirements at media companies? How can we deliver the best recommendation experience to our end users?

2012 - Current: Temporal models and visualisations of linguistic production contexts in multimodal interaction. How do past phenomena at different timescales affect the likelihood of occurrence of a particular event? How does the occurrence of a new event modify the current context and result in consequences reaching into the future? The goal of such characterisation is to identify (through quantification and visualisation) the regularities, irregularities and changes which occur in multimodal interactions at various timescales, to draw relations between them, and to submit them for further qualitative investigation.

2010 – Current: Analysing temporal complexity in scripted online discussion. How can analysts rapidly obtain an overview of the unfolding of an interaction over time? How can salient features such as deviance from the norm, or change over time be discovered? How can the role of events within contexts at multiple time scales be understood?

2010 – 2012: Introducing Accountable Talk practices in 9th grade biology classrooms. How can computer-mediated discussion scaffolded by conversational agents improve students’ explanation and reasoning skills? How can conversational agents be designed in a way that does not hamper the natural flow of collaboration while providing support for augmenting discussion productivity?

2011 – 2012: Supporting learning, fun, persistence, and positive interdependence: data-driven development of a physics game for young children. Can socio-emotional growth be encouraged through game mechanics? How can socio-emotional growth in normal children be assessed within and outside of a game?

2008 – Current: Productive multivocality in the analysis of group interactions. How can researchers from different theoretical and methodological backgrounds achieve mutual understanding. Can corpora serve as a boundary object in this process? How can computational models assist in the coordination of analytic representations to support productive multivocality?

2009 – 2010: Predicting learning outcomes from students’ use of programming environments. Can students patterns of usage of programming environments be data-mined to predict their future exam performance?

2006 – 2010: A model for managing and capitalising on the analyses of traces of activity in collaborative interaction. How can analyses of interactions be described so that they can be shared and re-used? How can such a framework inform the design of software to support such analyses?
