Short Bio

I am professor at the Computer Engineering Department of Polytechnique Montreal since 2002. Previously, I worked as a team leader at Machina Sapiens inc., a company which at that time was a leader in the development of grammar checkers, and as a professor at the Univerdade Federal do Parana, in Brazil. I received my Ph.D. degree in computer science in 1993 from the Université de Montreal. Since then, he has been working on natural language processing, with a special attention to semantics. Since 2002, my research activities also include the semantic web, especially its industrial applications. I was co-chair of TALN 2010 Conference, the main scientific event in French for researches in natural language processing. Currently, I am working on many research projects related to Linked Data, focusing on the problem of linking texts with linked data (semantic annotation and knowledge extraction)

Interest in LODLAM

I am currently working on many proposals for research projects on integration of Linked Data and Library Science, from a Natural Language Processing perspective.
