I am Associate Professor (tenured) at the University of New Caledonia and Researcher at the Institute of Exact and Applied Sciences (ISEA Lab, EA 7484).

My research is mainly focused on data mining (a subfield of data science), and especially pattern mining. The main objective of pattern mining is to extract hidden patterns in complex data (heterogeneous, volumous, noisy, etc.). I have studied various types of patterns (sets, sequences and graphs), most of them being related to spatio-temporal data (e.g. time series of satellite images).


I work in an interdisciplinary research laboratory that brings together biologists, geologists, physicists, chemists, mathematicians and computer scientists to address both fundamental and applied questions related to the concepts of risk and sustainable development. I am more particularly involved in the research them "Observation, Modelisation and Simulation". I have participated to several national and regional research projects dealing with various questions s.t. soil erosion, dengue fever spread, informal settlements or education.
