principal scientist



My central research interests are in combinatorial problem solving and artificial intelligence (e.g., constraint programming, amortized algorithms, non linear optimization, combinatorial search, Bayesian networks and machine learning).

I have worked in corporate R&D (5 years at Dassault Electronique, 9 years at ILOG, and 7 years at IBM) and in academia (4 years as associate professor of computer science at the "Ecole des Mines de Nantes").

At IBM, I am working in the contraint programming team, in which we are developing CP Optimizer, the CP engine of IBM CPLEX Studio, designing new algorithms for problem solving.
