Personal Page

I am a member of the Computer Science Departement of Télécom Bretagne, as well as of the research team DECIDE, belonging to the CNRS laboratory Lab-STICC. My research topics are natural language processing and text mining. I'm teaching graph theory, logic, probabilistic graphical models and computational linguistics.


Born in Athens (Greece) in 1962, I graduated from the Lycée Léonin High School (Athens) in 1979. I obtained my bachelor (DEUG A, Licence de mathématiques, Maîtrise de mathématiques pures and partly Maîtrise de mathématiques appliquées) and my master (DEA de mathématiques pures) from University of Lille I (USTL). I graduated (thèse de doctorat ès sciences mathématiques) in 1990 at the same university, in the field of Algebraic Topology and under the supervision of Prof. Daniel Tanré.

During my Ph.D. and until 1992, I worked as assistant associate (assistant associé and later ATER) at University of Lille I, giving classes in Algebra, Differential Calculus and Analysis.

After 1990 I became active in the field of digital typography and internationalization. In 1993/94 I gaved lectures (chargé d'enseignement) at the Institute of Oriental Languages and Civilisations (INALCO) in Paris as an external member of the CERTAL (Centre d'études et de recherches sur le traitement automatique des langues). In 1994 my wife and I started the company Atelier Fluxus Virus, specialized in the development of digital typography tools and systems. In 2003 I wrote a 1,000+ page book on digital typography and internationalization (Fontes et codages) for O'Reilly France, which was subsequently translated into English and published by O'Reilly US (Fonts & Encodings, From Advanced Typography to Unicode and everything in between, 2007).

In 2001 I entered Télécom Bretagne as a full Professor (directeur d'études) at the Computer Science Departement. I continued research on digital typography and electronic documents, progressively orienting myself to the area of natural language processing and text mining.

In 2010 I became a full member of the DECIDE research group (Data Mining and Decision Theory) of the Lab-STICC CNRS laboratory.

Ever since 2011 I am in charge of the CSDS (Computer Science and Decision Systems) master of Télécom Bretagne. Some of my classes are specific to this master (natural language processing, statistics) and others (probabilistic graphical models, graph theory, logic) are open also to other students of Télécom Bretagne.
