Current research interests:

I am a member of TALN (LS2N) at the University of Nantes. My research interests are in computational linguistics especially on grammars of natural languages. In TALN with a collaboration with members of LIS at IRISA (Rennes), we develop two models, an original one Categorial Dependency Grammars (CDG) introduced by Alexander Dikovsky and a simpler model introduced by Jim Lambek Pregroup Grammars. For both models, we have parsers and lexicons for various natural languages. To develop useful lexicon, we study some automatic learning algorithms (both for theoretical and pratical points of view). Currently, we prepare the first release of CDGFr, a large cover CDG parser for the French language together with a dependency tree corpus of French sentences.
