Previous affiliations

University of Orléans

From September 2009 til September 2017, I was a member of LIFO, the CS lab of the University of Orléans (which still is my secondary affiliation). I taught CS to undergraduate students at the University Institute of Technology (IUT) and was a member of the organizing committee of the Programming Contest Challenge Lionel Martin of the IUT d’Orléans.

From May 2011 til September 2013, I was also a member of IRES Orléans (Research Institute in Science Teaching), where I took part in the creation of the Computing Science group. As of September 2015, I work with the Maison pour la Science en Centre-Val de Loire to train primary and secondary school teachers to computing science.

University of Tübingen

In 2007-2008, I was a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Tübingen, in the Emmy-Noether group led by Prof. Dr. Laura Kallmeyer, hosted by the collaborative research center SFB 441.

From October 2003 til April 2007, I was a PhD student at LORIA, working in the TALARIS team and supervised by Dr Claire Gardent. I spent some time in Office B224.
