Bio I received my PhD from University of Rennes 1, where I was working in the Dyliss team (DYnamics, Logics and Inference for biological Systems and Sequences), at the INRIA institute (Rennes, France). My research area have focused on making sense of unconventional and complex wide data biological sets, such as signaling pathways, gene interactions, or more recently, Electronical Health Records (EHRs). In Boussard Lab, my research is to establish different novel strategies for the evaluation the quality healthcare delivery, involving machine learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods.
