My research interest lies in the automatic analysis of digitized documents, in order to expose their structure in addition to the textual content.
Interested in trying our technology?
A bit of history...
I graduated from the ENSIMAG, a computer science and applied mathematics engineering school (a so-called French "Grande Ecole") in 1989.
I first worked for the Cap Gemini R&D center, where I was exposed to the emerging domain of business process automation, in the context of a large European research project. The Cap Gemini team proudly came out with one of the first workflow product, called Process Weaver. I was responsible for the design, development of the process engine part and, later on, for its maintenance and support, with one foot on the service side.
I then joined Xerox Research in 1995 and worked on the creation of a coordination middleware, see CLF 1, with a particular focus on its application to business process support. We later on got quite addicted to looking for ways to stimulate and sustain knowledge sharing in business environments. I contributed in particular to the SmartPrinter 1 and KnowledgePump 1 2 research and software development.
I joined the Document Structure group in 2004, and contributed in particular to Rossinante. Feel free to create your ePub there!
In 2012, I joined the MLDAT group and led a project involving machine translation and multi-lingual text generation, and then managed the technological transfer to Xerox business services India.
All my publications since 1995 are in the XRCE publication database.
