Education

Employment History

Research Scientist in Machine Learning
Google Inc
2007-Present

Research on machine learning algorithms for large scale ranking problems.

Senior Researcher in Machine Learning
IDIAP Research Institute
1999-2007

Research on machine learning algorithms. Supervision of Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows. Research projet management.

Research Director
Microcell Labs
1997-1999

Direction of a research team focusing on the development and the application of various learning algorithms to exploit many dataware houses regarding the internal processes and client behaviors of a telecommunication company. Problems tackled: fraud dectection, churning and traffic prediction.

Researcher
Centre Interuniversitaire de Recherche en ANalyse des Organisations, CIRANO
1996-1997

Development of various machine learning and statistical models that make predictions and take decisions on financial markets: portfolio management, asset prediction, portfolio selection. In an other project, development of a machine learning model that simulates an agent on various types of auctions (buy at the best price given known information).

Postdoctoral Fellow
Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique - Télécommunications
1995-1996

Development and use of an Asynchronous Input/Output Hidden Markov Model (which can also be viewed as a connectionist recurrent mixture of experts) for speech recognition. This model was particularly well suited for non-stationary temporal problems.

Postdoctoral Fellow
Centre National d'Etudes des Télécommunications, France Télécom
1994-1995

Time series prediction with Neural Networks. Series were taken from a physical domain (sunspot-related) as well as a telecommunication domain. Various mixture models were proposed.

Research Assistant
Centre de Recherche sur les Transports, Université de Montréal
1993-1993

Use of Genetic Algorithms and Tabu Search for a Combinatorial Optimization Problem: the Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows.

Part Time System Administrator and Research Assistant
Department of Computer Science, Université de Montréal
1986-1993

Sysadmin for the intelligent tutoring systems and multimedia laboratories of the computer science department.
