Short Biography


Defended in July 2007 a PhD in the LILaC team of IRIT (Toulouse) about the logical formalisation of emotions in a BDI logics, programming a Prolog emotional agent based on that model (PLEIAD) and using it for user tests.

Oct 2007 - Oct 2008: Postdoc at Orange Labs in Lannion about institutional logics, programming a multi-agent mediation platform for business to business interactions, using the JSA extension for JADE.

Nov 2008 - Dec 2010: Postdoc in the Intelligent Agents group at RMIT university (Melbourne, Australia) on the Toys project, consisting in developping a toy companion for children that interacts naturally with them over a variety of topics and evolves over time to keep them engaged in the long-term.

Since Dec 2010: Assistant Professor (Maître de Conférences) in Computer Science at Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble, France), mainly working on conversational agents and logical formalisation of dialogue.

March-April 2012: visiting researcher in the Intelligent Agents group at RMIT university (Melbourne, Australia) working on personality for artificial agents tobe applied as companion agents or in video games.

February-May 2015: visiting researcher in the Intelligent Agents group at RMIT. BDI agents in social simulation. TDF tool.

February 2017: visiting researcher at ISISTAN, Argentina. Comparing methods for user modelling in Multi-Agent Systems.

February-March 2018: visiting researcher at SMART, University of Wollongong, Australia. Serious games for crisis management.
