I am an engineer in a linguistics and natural language processing laboratory.

Field of research

I work on various projects in digital humanities. Depending on the project, the work to be carried out can be first to digitise the data when they are not digital (Paris Time Machine project, digitisation of the Parisian owners' directories), to allow the interrogation and the valorisation of these data.

For the Oupoco project, I participated in the extraction of specific poems (sonnets) from a semi-structured data set. I collaborated in the formatting of these sonnets and their integration into an online query platform. The platform allows one to compose sonnets using constraints.

For the Paris Time Machine project, the aim is to enhance a directory-type resource along two axes: the first is the identification in the text of owners' addresses and their projection on a map, the second is a reflection on the online availability of the source (from the paper version to the xml-tei structuring of the text).
